We have previously spoken of our Professional Advisory Council, the valuable insights and support they offer us. After hearing a presentation about the collaborate studios and understanding the benefit of synergy that comes from effective collaborative efforts, they acted in direct response and have endowed a fund to support The PAC College of Architecture Prize!
