Victoria’s award citation notes:
After graduating from The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture, Victoria Scott Carpenter hit the ground running. She joined the AIA Board as a student liaison in 2016, has organized a campaign to highlight Missing Middle housing as an educational component of the AIA Austin Homes Tour, and chairs the chapter’s Emerging Professionals Committee. She is also part of the group of architects advising the City of Austin on CodeNEXT.
“Victoria has one of the most positive personalities I have encountered in many years of teaching. She is always focused and organized. She is always ready to help manage any kind of project. She gets things done. I would say to anyone that comes across her: Try to work with her.”
