2014 Chicago Student Awards in Architecture Winners Announced
Each year, AIA Chicago convenes a jury to award The Chicago Award in Architecture, a competition of student projects. The project awarded first place is honored with the the Benn-Johnck Award, in the amount of $500.
This year, the Benn-Johnck Award was given to Washington University student Allison Conley for her proposal "Perceived Fragmentation."
"Perceived Fragmentation" aims to activate the St. Louis riverfront through human motion. The project proposes a school of dance and performance art that, through a series of formal and informal performance venues, merges the performance and public realm.
In addition to Conley's honor, "Solar Frame," submitted by University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee students Mike Zhou and Dustin Roosa, received an honorable mention. "Solar Frame" is an adaptive reuse proposal to bring new life to AT&T's Chicago HQ.
