AIA OHIO Student DESIGN AWARDS PROGRAM

The AIA Ohio Student Design Awards program focuses on high quality, innovative design responses. This
program allows students to submit any school project they have worked on during the past academic year, including projects completed outside of the classroom setting (e.g. competitions). Students may even elect to re-address projects previously submitted as part of course work and improve their original design solution. The AIA Ohio Student Design Awards provides all students with the opportunity to submit their best and most innovative work.

      HONORABLE MENTION

      CYCLICALITY

      Alex Petruso| Kent State University


      Jury Comments

      • Enjoy the way that time is integrated into experiencing a site.
      • Beautiful sections! I enjoy the thought behind the ever-changing tide and using that to create changing spaces.
      • Effectively uses diagrams to display the study of the changing tide. Interesting idea of the multiuse space that floods. Diagrammatic and renderings allows us to see the design process.

      HONORABLE MENTION

      Rethinking URBAN VOIDS

      Nazia Tarannum | Miami University


      Jury Comments

      •  The analysis and diagramming are outstanding.
      • Very well presented. In one of the most densely populated cities in the world I appreciate the sensitivity to preserving space through consistent identifiable elements. Graphics and design are culturally relevant, beautiful presentation.
      • Good idea to reuse the voids of a crowded city for opportunity spaces.

      HONORABLE MENTION

      a disturbance of memory on Sutro Bath: the uncanny of the ruins

      Kiana Memarandadgar | University of Cincinnati


      Jury Comments

      • Minimalism should be celebrated in student work since developing self-restraint is much harder than the many exuberant forms we see every day.
      • A conceptual project, ethereal.
      • Nice graphics, poetic design strategically placed on the site.
