Alpha Rho Chi Bronze Medal, Award

NOMA Student Design Competition - Urban [space] US12...Idea Center, 2nd Place

NOMA is seeking ideas for the invigoration and infusion of community led design and economic development for urban spaces in Southwest Detroit. The design problem requires in-depth research of historical site conditions as well as an understanding of the current social, cultural, economic, and physical space conditions found in this unique community. Designers must also understand the entrepreneurial spirit of the current citizens and envision solutions that will support sustained and enhanced economic development in Southwest Detroit, an area that has been severely under-resourced for several decades. Successful planning and architectural design solutions must address how the identity and physical spaces of the city/neighborhood may be reinvented to optimally leverage Michigan Avenue’s Corktown District.
