The School of Architecture (SOA) at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) recently announced that three high school students won the annual National Architectural Design Competition for high school students.
This year's project was to design a skateboard park, replete with an arena, bleachers and a service area that included showers, lockers, a food station and an administration area.
Nine teams of architecture students from New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) competed in a masonry design competition, with five teams winning $18,500 in prize money.
The contest, sponsored by The Masonry Contractors of New Jersey and co-sponsored by The International Masonry Institute, taught the students techniques they don’t commonly encounter in design studios: how to spread mortar and lay brick.
The Mid-Atlantic Precast Association (MAPA), an organization comprised of 12 precast concrete producer member firms located throughout the Mid-Atlantic States, announces Michael Kluck, an architect with the Princeton Design Guild in Belle Mead, New Jersey, as the first place winner of their Precast Castle Design Competition. Sika Corporation and Meadow Burke Products served as co-sponsors of this year's program in celebration of MAPA's twenty-fifth anniversary.
