aia cote back to back

25889_01-19-16_11-28pmCongratulations to ISU M.Arch. students Mengwei Liu and Anastasia Sysoeva (and to their rock star studio critic Ulrike Passe) for snagging a spot in the AIA Committee on the Environment Top Ten Awards for architecture students.  The official announcement is now up on the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture website, and their project is here.

This is the second year in a row that our ARCH 601 studio has been recognized, and it’s a good indication of both how seriously our faculty take the challenge to make environmental response a key part of not just architectural education, but also part of a design approach in general.

So now I’m feeling the pressure to  have students repeat in the ACSA/AISC Steel competition, due in a couple of weeks.  Glad to have colleagues and students here who keep re-setting the bar higher and higher…
