AISC and ACSA Announce Winners of Steel Design Student Competition

The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) and the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) announced the winners of the 19th Annual Steel Design Student Competition for the 2018-2019 academic year. Administered by ACSA and sponsored by AISC, the competition encourages students to explore the use of steel in design and construction. 

This year, students highlighted innovation in steel design by competing in two separate categories. Category I, Intermodal Transportation Center, challenged students to design an intermodal transportation center in a major urban location. Category 2, Open, gave students the flexibility of choosing a site and building program using steel as the primary material.  

First place in Category I was awarded to student Curt Budd of California Polytechnic State University and faculty sponsor Margarida Yin. Category II's winners were students Brenton Rahn and Andres Felipe of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and faculty sponsor David Newton. Congratulations to all of the talented participants! All of the winners will be featured in the November issue of Modern Steel Construction

In addition, the winning projects will be on display at the 2020 ACSA Annual Meeting in San Diego and the American Institute of Architects 2020 Convention in Los Angeles. Learn more about the competition and the winners here.
