Dean Garth Rockcastle and the faculty extend well-deserved congratulations to all ten seniors who represented Maryland in this year's competition and a special bravo to this year's winners.
Below are the winning teams from this year's interschool competition winners. This year's competition was for the design of a demountable theatre for the mall. Students were treated to a fantastic briefing about the state of the Mall and then embarked upon this effort by Judy Scott Feldman, PhD, Chair and President of the National Coalition to Save Our Mall. The boards will travel to the four schools this semester.
Ten Architecture seniors compete and win in an Inter-School Competition sponsored by the National Building Museum. Each team was made up of one member from four local schools - University of Maryland, Virginia Tech, Catholic University and Howard University.
The prize amounts (per student) were $250 for first, $150 for second, $100 for third. Books were given to each team of students that participated, titled: The National Mall, Rethinking Washington's Monumental Core.
Maryland student winners are detailed below.
