Courtney Evans is the newest member of the award-winning design
December 15, 2010 (RALEIGH, NC) – Frank Harmon, FAIA, founder and principal of Frank Harmon Architect PA in Raleigh, is pleased to announced that Courtney Evans has joined his award-winning architecture firm as a project designer and architectural intern.
Evans was recently honored as the recipient of the Kamphoefner Honor Fellowship for the 2010-11 academic year. Established by Henry Kamphoefner, the first dean of the North Carolina State University School of Design (now College of Design), and his wife, the award recognizes and supports the College’s outstanding Master of Architecture student of each class. The jury was comprised of faculty members who are Fellows of the American Institute of Architects, including Georgia Bizios, Roger Clark and Patrick Rand.
In 2007, Evans was named Senior of The Year when she received her Bachelor of Science degree in industrial engineering.
“Courtney has a wonderful design imagination and sense of place, illustrated in her work,” Harmon said.
Evans grew up on her family’s farm in Fremont, NC. She credits her summers spent on the farm and her father with her appreciation for environmentalist and the “green,” or sustainable, regionally appropriate architecture for which the Harmon firm is known.
“My father taught me how to work, how to view the world, and gave me an intrinsic love for nature,” she said. “I am truly honored and excited to be working with Frank, Will [Lambeth] Mike [Spinello], and John [Caliendo]. I could not be happier about this extraordinary opportunity to work with such a talented group of people.”
