Clemson architecture program receives $40K LS3P Foundation grant

LS3P Foundation, a nonprofit initiative affiliated with LS3P, awarded a $40,000 design interventions grant to Clemson University master of architecture program co-directors Andreea Mihalache and David Franco.

The funds will be used to support the team’s project Addressing Climate Change and Tourism on the Southeastern Barrier Islands, which explores sustainable alternatives to tourist developments on the East Coast Barrier Islands.

“We want to express our gratitude to the LS3P Foundation for this incredible opportunity and for their initiative to strengthen the relationship between academia and practice by funding research with real-life impact,” said Mihalache. “Our main goal is to empower and give agency to local communities in a two-step approach: to educate the public about these threats, and to create and distribute materials that offer practical assistance and design guidelines for future development.”

The LS3P Foundation awards grants to universities, companies and organizations in the region to advance impactful research in areas, such as healthy communities, social equity, sustainable systems and economic mobility. For more information, visit
