Jury citation

With his contemporary and comprehensive approach to leadership, Samuel Jeyaseelan, University of South Australia, is a worthy recipient of the 2012 Student Prize. A fourth-year student, Samuel is a visible, memorable and effective presence within his immediate student cohort, within the local professional community and at the national level of students and architects. He has promoted architecture through active involvement in SONA, the SA Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects and University of South Australia student mentoring and representation, and principally as co-creative director of Flux, the 2011 Australia and New Zealand Student Architecture Congress. In addition to his ethical, sustained and intelligent driving of the humanitarian themes of Flux, Samuel has methodically disseminated architectural ideas at all levels and in a variety of modes of communication, including public radio and contemporary social networks Twitter, Tumblr, Blogger and Facebook. The jury was impressed with his capacity for outreach at a grassroots level, his dedication to the contemporary causes of the discipline while maintaining a distinguished academic record, and the clarity and maturity of his nomination.
