Manuel Millan (Carteret), and Wai Lung Choi (Newark), students at NJIT’s New Jersey School of Architecture, have added to the honors historically won by entries from NJIT in the 2003 Caddies competition. Millan won a second-place award in the Undergraduate Student category for Venetian Canal and tied for third place with Choi for Glass Studio. Choi’s winning entry is Prague Town Square. According to Cadalyst Magazine, the winners, Millan and Choi among them, stood out from an “overwhelming” number of entries.
The NJIT tradition of innovation and excellence in computer aided design (CAD) began in 1985, when the country’s first architectural electronic design studio was established on campus. The university’s graduates soon pioneered the use of this technology in the workplace and NJIT students began to reap honors in national and international CAD competitions ? including the design competition sponsored in part by Cadalyst Magazine. This annual international competition celebrates excellence in digital imaging and awards students and professionals for still images and animation.
