Student Charette Competition, 1st Place

This exacting competition challenged fourth and fifth year USC School of Architecture students to conceive and create a Rail Studio, or a mobile design studio, without the use of technology. When the thirty-two students arrived, they were surprised with the theme, and in teams of two, the students were given seven hours to complete the project.

Finalists were chosen by a panel of judges including Ronald Altoon, founding principal of Altoon + Porter Architects, Ernest Cirangle, Sr. VP and Design Principal of HOK, Los Angeles, and Paul Danna, Principal of AECOM. The students were asked to present their designs before these judges and an audience.
