SGH Concepts & Dri-Design Competition Winners


The College of Architecture in partnership with SGH Concepts and Dri-Design, have established a student scholarship competition for the fourth-year, undergraduate, architectural design studios. Today jury members awarded these well-deserved accolades:

Excellence Award | “Community Crucible” by Austin Wahl and Xander Parker

Jury Notes: Overall, a very comprehensively resolved project. The spaces for making and creating community were thoughtfully investigated. The formal response is the strength of the design, including the way it negotiates the site and the corner. The structural system responded to the material constraints yet provided an architecturally appropriate response.

Honor Award | “Atelier – Sheldon Museum of Art” by Ethan Boerner and Mason Burress

Jury Notes: It is a very poetic solution. The connector and transition to the new addition were remarkable. The attention to developing the three facades is thoughtful. Graphics are superior.

A huge congratulations to all the finalists! Tymaree Krusemark, Megan Kortenhof, Ethan Boerner, Blake Phillips, Preston Doerrfeld, Austin Wahl, Xander Parker and Mason Burress. Additionally, we would like to thank all of our critics for spending the day with us offering us the benefit of their experience.
