Henry Sorenson, professor in the Montana State University School of Architecture, has been recognized by the American Society of Architectural Illustrators with an Observational Award of Excellence for his illustration “Corn Crib.”
Sorenson’s work will be featured in the 32 annual “Architecture in Perspective”catalog and exhibition as part of the award. His work has been featured in the catalog numerous times during his tenure at MSU, including last year, when two of his illustrations were recognized.
“The American Society of Architecture Illustrators is the pre-eminent gathering of designers and artists who specialize in the representation of visions associated with the built environment,” said Andrew Vernooy, director of the MSU School of Architecture, which is in the MSU College of Arts and Architecture. “They muster dreams and give them public body.”
Sorenson has also just been awarded first place in the 2017 American Institute of Architects national photography competition for his photograph “Two of a Kind.” The image will be printed and exhibited at the AIA national convention to be held in Orlando, Florida, in late April. Sorenson’s photo, along with other winning images, will also be posted in Architect Magazine online in January of 2018, to announce next year’s competition.
Sorenson, a professor in MSU’s School of Architecture since 1983, has been a professional architectural illustrator for more than 40 years. He has been a member of ASAI for many years, serving as president in 2001. His work, and the work of his students, has previously been recognized for excellence by ASAI.
