Congratulation to Columbia Alum Stanley Ko, whose family has a long dedication on bringing in the fine culinary establishment to Taiwan, just be recognized for the top TWO (not just one) places, RAW and Ryugin, on the Top 38 Essential Taipei Restaurants by the international renown food publication Eater.
Guess booking a table at the trendsetting RAW and Ryugin is not going to get any easier anytime soon.
Congratulations to GSSAP alum Joshua Jih Pan (M.Arch '67) on receiving the highest honor awarded to artists in Taiwan: the National Award for Arts. The ceremony was held at Taiwan Air Force Innovation Base on 25th, March, 2016.
The professionals of this year’s recipients include architecture, literature, music, dance and fine art. “Each of the winners magnificently contributes to Taiwan’s artistic community” said an NCAF official.
Per the NCAF jury citation: “Joshua Jih Pan‘s design pursues a balance between form and function with a refined aesthetics that reflects an abiding sensitivity towards technology, environment, public and society. His diverse portfolio of work maintains a continuous emphasis on sustainability, and incorporates social, historical and environmental concerns to create architecture that elevates the humanistic value.”
Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton recently won Columbia’s 2016 Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History. The hip-hop musical based on Ron Chernow’s 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton reimagines the American Revolution and the early years of the Republic with a cast of predominantly Black and Latino actors. Ambassador Jean Kennedy Smith created the $100,000 prize, administered by Columbia Libraries, to honor her brother, the late senator from Massachusetts. This year’s jury, which included Columbia professors Farah Jasmine Griffin, Rashid Khalidi, and James Shapiro ’77CC, selected Hamilton because it “celebrates the evolving history of the United States, of hip-hop, and of the musical theater.” (For more on Hamilton, see Columbia Magazine’s Winter 2015 feature story “Hamilton is in the House.”) Read more of this article at Columbia Magazine.
