Tina’s submission, a renovation of the Clinton Hill community library in Brooklyn, New York, was chosen from a large number of applications received from top colleges and universities across the nation. Her vision was to create a flexible space that inspires patrons to immerse themselves into the book experience.

“I am thrilled to be recognized by Gensler” said Uznanski. “Winning the Brinkmann scholarship will challenge me to apply what I’ve learned at Pratt to practical use. I am so appreciative for the opportunity to learn firsthand from some of the world’s greatest design thinkers.”

“Gensler is committed to supporting the professional development of the industry’s young  talent,” said Robin Klehr Avia, managing principal for Gensler’s Northeast region. “Our mission is  to partner with our clients to deliver design innovations that transform their organizations, and Tina’s winning concept captured that spirit.”

The Gensler Brinkmann Scholarship Fund was established in 1999 as a memorial to Donald G.  Brinkmann, a gifted interior designer, inspirational leader and former partner at Gensler. The scholarship fund celebrates Brinkmann’s career-long commitment to nurturing new design talent  by presenting outstanding interior design students with an internship and a financial award  to be applied to their final year of school. Candidates for the scholarship must attend a CIDAaccredited school and are evaluated based upon their analysis and problem solving skills, design development, graphic presentation, communication skills and passion.
