In October, Norwich architecture professor Tolya Syril Stonorov received the 2016 Vermont Women in Higher Education Peggy R. Williams Emerging Professional Award. A sizable Norwich contingent, including President Richard W. Schneider, turned out for the banquet at Saint Michael’s College in Colchester, Vt., to cheer Stonorov on. An engaging teacher with a passion for her chosen field, she led Norwich architecture students on the recent “Archistream,” project, which transformed a vintage Airstream Globetrotter into a mobile outreach, education, and design center. This project toured the state and was a featured exhibit at the Build Boston convention. Stonorov is currently working on a book, The Design Build Studio | Crafting Meaningful Work in Architecture Education.
