06/01/18 USC M.Arch Students Win Awards at AIA LA's 2x8 Competition

 

How do next generation designers envision the future of their city and individual buildings within it? What are student designers' priorities for architecture? Which conventions will they break from, and which will they choose to follow? Students tackled these questions in the 2018 AIA LA 2x8, a competition, exhibition, and scholarship fund for architecture students at institutions of higher education throughout California. Academic institutions select two projects by student teams, which are then considered by a jury of architects and designers who select winning entries. Winners and scholarship recipients were announced at this year's exhibition opening on Tuesday, May 22, and two M.Arch students from the USC School of Architecture took home awards. Ashley Mangus received third place (The AIA National Component Scholarship) for her entry titled "City Seed." Sarah Sager and Jiming Bai received an honorable mention for their entry, "Interstitial Space." A free exhibit showcasing all student entries is on display at the Helms Bakery Walk in Culver City through June 7.
