Caitlin Turner, a fourth-year student in the School of Interior Architecture, has been selected for Metropolis magazine’s Future100, an elite group of architecture and interior architecture students from the U.S. and Canada.

The inaugural award recognizes the top 100 graduating students in North America who, as emerging leaders, are interpreting and reimagining the fields of architecture and interior architecture.

“We were blown away by the quality of work you and your peers submitted, and we felt that you represent a bright future for our industry—one of beautiful, thoughtful, innovative, sustainable, and inclusive design,” said Avinash Rajagopal, editor in chief of the magazine, in the award letter.

As part of the Future100 honor, Turner’s work and credentials have been shared with architecture and design firms across North America to encourage professional connections and career opportunities. She and the School of Interior Architecture also will be featured in a spring issue of the magazine.

“Applying for this recognition allowed me to reevaluate my work, push my ideas further and think critically about my goals as an interior architect,” said Turner. “I am excited for the chance to develop connections with architecture firms across North America, and I thank the professors in the college for constantly supporting me in my pursuit of this profession.”

Turner was nominated by Interior Architecture Lecturer Tim Dolan. “I have found Caitlin to be intellectually inquisitive, highly-engaged, thorough, detailed and most importantly, responsible,” Dolan said. “Her commitment to inquiry, research and investigation is rarely equaled. Caitlin’s ability to not only survive in this environment, but also thrive, speaks to what I believe will be a very successful career and one in which she will emerge as a leader.”

Metropolis magazine is a leading resource in the design industries. For more than 50,000 subscribers, 100,000 monthly website visitors and 285,000 social media followers, it covers design at all scales, focuses on sustainability, accessibility and technology and features leaders and influencers in the industries.
