The Awards Ceremony, Student Exhibition and Reception
Date: Friday, December 6th
Place: Katz Hall, Room 101
Please join us for the Bud Prize, an annual juried design competition held as part of the second-year architectural studies studio. This year, the students have been asked to design a recreational community center, located on the corner of 42nd St. and Troost Avenue. The students will be asked to present their individual projects during a final review, and will receive feedback from a distinguished jury of academics, architects and local business professionals. The jury is open to all–come for as little or as long as you like.
An awards ceremony will take place the following day, at which the winner will be announced (and all the participant’s work will be exhibited). The reception is open to all (and it’s a great time to learn more about our program!)
