Two students from the professional M.Arch. program, Marilina Cianci and Yekaterina Artemchuk, under the supervision of faculty sponsor Sinisha Brdar, have been awarded an Honorable Mention in the open category of the 2011-12 Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) / American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Steel Design Student Competition for their project INTERTWINE: An Energy Resource Machine and Wildlife Habitat for Maldives.
The twelfth annual steel design student competition was administered by the ACSA and sponsored by the AISC. The program was intended to challenge students, working individually or in teams, to explore a variety of design issues related to the use of steel in design and construction. Steel had to be used as the primary structural material and contain at least one space that required long-span steel structure, with special emphasis placed on innovation in steel design.
