The following individuals will serve as jurors for the 2017 SCUP excellence awards program. Jurors are selected for their planning and design expertise from institutions and firms around the country.
Brodie Bain, FAIA, AICP, LEED AP is the Campus Planning Director, Principal at Perkins+Will. She has over 28 years of experience focused on pre-designs and planning for higher education. She seeks to help institutions achieve their mission through a supportive physical environment and to think strategically about priorities. Brodie’s approach, whether campus planning, space programming, site planning or pre-designs (for all building types), stems from a passion for listening to users and translating needs into functional space - all while leveraging physical opportunities and solving for operational constraints. Her solutions weave open space and connections with building function, placement and image. Brodie’s recent work includes nationally innovative approaches to sustainable systems planning for campuses. This is her first year serving on the jury.
