Architects Foundation Introduces Scholarship Program in Honor of Yann Weymouth

The Architects Foundation has announced the establishment of a scholarship program in honor of architect Yann Weymouth, AIA.

“I am honored to be a part of this scholarship,” says Weymouth. “This opportunity will allow me to engage, mentor, and guide some of the most talented young architecture students so that they can carry the torch forward to shape our future. For that, I am grateful.”

The Yann Weymouth Scholarship will be granted annually, beginning next year, to a graduate architecture student dedicated to integrating design with sustainable initiatives. In addition to financial support, students will have the opportunity to seek guidance and support from Weymouth.

During his career, Weymouth served as chief of design for I.M. Pei on the National Gallery of Art East Wing in Washington and the Grand Louvre Project in Paris. In addition, he held positions as senior vice president, design director, and worldwide design board member for HOK Architects, where he contributed to four museum commissions in the state of Florida. He now serves as design director of St. Pete Design Group.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to celebrate Yann’s career with this scholarship,” says Architects Foundation President Jeffery Potter, FAIA. “I look forward to seeing his impact on these students translate into careers in the architecture profession.”

The Architects Foundation held a private reception to honor Weymouth and announce the scholarship. At the event, Weymouth was joined by his daughter Katharine and his wife Susana; David Skorton, Smithsonian Institution; Chien Chung Pei, AIA, Pei Partnership Architects; William Hellmuth, FAIA, HOK; Charles Hine, Salvador Dalí Museum; Laura Hine, the James Museum; Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan, Washington Post.
