The ASID National Awards represent the Society’s highest level of professional recognition. The awards primarily recognize a body of work created over the course of a career rather than a specific member achievement. However, institutions, corporations, and patrons may be recognized for specific exemplary projects or product innovation.
Each year, the Society appoints a jury of esteemed ASID members, fellows, and members of the design community to review all submissions.
One of the ASID National Awards is the Nancy Vincent McClelland Merit Award. The Nancy Vincent McClelland Merit Award pays tribute to the work and accomplishments of Nancy Vincent McClelland, an ardent advocate for professional recognition in the interior design field and the first woman president of the American Institute of Decorators (now ASID), from 1941 to 1944.
This year the Texas Chapter is thrilled that member Tamie Glass, ASID has been recognized as the 2018 Nancy Vincent McClelland Merit Award winner.
Tamie Glass teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in interior design at The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture. Her intercontinental career launched at Daimler in Germany with the creation of corporate identity projects for the Mercedes-Benz brand, followed by four years in London with Virgile & Stone and Conran and Partners. Her expertise extends from high-end hospitality and retail projects throughout the EU and Asia to wellness, corporate, and residential designs in the U.S. Her forthcoming book, “Prompt: Socially Engaging Objects and Environments,” will be published by Birkhäuser Switzerland in the summer of 2018. As a thought-starter for designers, it explores modes of psychosocial interaction and engagement within spaces. She will continue to explore design and human behavior as a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley’s Center for the Built Environment in the spring of 2019.
Tamie holds NCIDQ certification, is a Registered Interior Designer in the State of Texas, and maintains an Austin-based design practice with Associate Professor Ulrich Dangel. Since 2008, she has been the recipient of nearly thirty local, regional, and national design awards including the 2012 Interior Design Educators Council Creative Scholarship Best in Show, the 2011 ASID Educator Design Excellence Award, and the 2014 Regents' Outstanding Teaching Award by The University of Texas System.
