High Rise Design Competition, 1st Place

Each year, the NDSU Architecture Department teaches a high rise studio for all fourth years. The studio requires a complete project that serves as the capstone project for the Bachelor's of Environmental Design. This award is given to the best high rise design of that year, and is judged by area architects, alumni, and advanced students.


KKE/DLR Group Design Competition, Honorable Mention

During the fall semester of the fourth year in the Architecture program at NDSU, there is a two week design competition where students are given a non-architecture-related design problem that they must solve. At the conclusion of the two weeks, architects from the DLR Group come to NDSU to jury the competition and choose two winners and two honorable mentions.


BWBR Prize, 1st Place

In the third year of the architecture program at NDSU, students are asked to submit a portfolio as a part of their fall semester projects. The faculty review these portfolios and short list several and forward them the BWBR to make an even shorter list. Then, five students are invited to the firm in St. Paul, Minnesota to give a presentation about themselves and their work in front of the firm’s principals. They judge the students based on their cumulative work and presentation, and choose one that is coined as being the "complete architect" and award that person a $1000 Award.
