04/19/21 Four USC Architecture Students Named to Inaugural Metropolis Future 100
Metropolis has selected the top 100 interior design and architecture students graduating this year in North America–including four USC Architecture students–as its inaugural Metropolis Future 100. Nominated by their instructors and mentors, this diverse group of student leaders advocates for openness, equity, and inclusion through classwork and extracurriculars.
Design for public good underscores Liudmila Sergeeva’s (M.Arch ’21) portfolio, which includes a communal coworking space that grows food for the neighborhood on-site, a reimagined parking garage with room to gather on top, and a K-12 youth center.
Adrianna Fransz (B.Arch ’21) has a passion for public space that shines in a social justice center in Los Angeles, where she prevented a 10-story tower from casting shade on the surrounding neighborhood.
With a stark, eclectic style of representation, Guy Laforet (B.Arch ’21) focuses on overlooked aspects of the urban environment, including transit stations and a public pool. Many projects respond to social issues like homelessness and ableist development.
Christina Shin’s (B.Arch ’21) “99 Laps” concept for a public pool housed under a long-span cantilevered structure exemplifies her playful approach while demonstrating an affinity for building technology.
