CambridgeSeven, a Cambridge-based, internationally recognized architecture and design firm, announced the winner of its fourth annual STEAM scholarship, Greggy Bazile, a senior at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School.
Bazile, an aspiring architect and interdisciplinary designer, wowed the scholarship committee with his artistic talent, vision and passionate activism.
“CambridgeSeven is thrilled that this year’s recipient of the STEAM Scholarship is not only a talented artist, but also attending Cornell University’s Architecture, Art and Planning School,” said Patti Intrieri, AIA, principal at CambridgeSeven. “Greggy is our first recipient to follow the path of architecture, and we could not be prouder! Our team will keep him on our radar and continue to offer him support as a new student of the profession.”
The annual STEAM Scholarship Program for students at CRLS was established in 2018 by the principals of CambridgeSeven to grant a $5,000 scholarship to a deserving senior pursuing a college education in one of the STEAM fields: science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. To qualify for this scholarship, the student must be the first in his or her family to attend a four-year college, a full-time student working towards an undergraduate degree at an accredited college or university and committed to excelling in one of the STEAM fields.
Through his STEAM coursework at CRLS, the Design Discovery Program at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and the ACE Mentor Program in Architecture, Construction, and Engineering, Bazile worked toward enhancing community spaces throughout the city of Cambridge with powerful artistic installations and creative public art through an artist residency with Building Equity Bridges and graphic design projects with local organizations to name a few. He is the recipient of several awards, including the Scholastic Art Award National Silver Key; the Scholastic Art Award Regional Gold Key; Summer Academy Scholarship; and First Place Vacant Storefront Design Contest.
Bazile is also an active member of the art and design community, serving as a student representative for the city of Cambridge Advisory Committee on Public Art, Memorials and Markers; and participating in the Roger Williams University: Summer Academy in Architecture. Bazile will attend Cornell University’s School of Architecture, Art and Planning in the fall — majoring in architecture with a possible minor in fine arts or fashion studies — where he hopes to gain an invaluable toolbox in better serving his community, neighborhood and society in whatever capacity he finds himself upon graduation.
