Third-year architecture students Sinan Goral and Sophie Nahrmann have won both Most Innovative and People's Choice in the FLUX Emerging Architects Design Competition. Their project, Ecoschool, "reverse-engineers how waste water and energy are processed within a building by exposing such systems to create beautiful, austere, and honest pipe networks that are enclosed by a reductive and cloudlike cage...[it] heightens the awareness of climate change and hints at a futurist, technology-empowered housing strategy." Tech firm FLUX seeks to address climate change and affordable urban housing through project data-sharing tools; its student competition invites participants to design affordable, sustainable buildings in a rapidly urbanizing world. Computational Design Master's student Amit Nambiar received an Honorable Mention for his project, Dezi-estimate. Congratulations, Sophie, Sinan, and Amit!
