Today was the day....! An outside jury of sustainable design professionals chose from all the student projects the one(s) they thought would represent us best at the 2011 Decathlon.
The JURY: Thorn Grafton [Zyscovich , Inc.]; Mikael Kaul [Kaulium]; Alejandro Branger [Perkins + Will]; Yimin Zhu [FIU COE]; Roberto Rovira [FIU Landscape Architecture]
The Requirements: A model at 1/4" = 1'-0", and a board folded according to DOE rules describing the project.
The Process: No presentations. The jury viewed boards mounted gallery style in all the jury rooms and selected the 3 projects they liked best. Authors: Manny Dorticos, Mohammed Shanti, Isis Fumero
The 3 students whose work was chosen presented their projects and answered jury questions in the Reading Room. Then the jury deliberated, voted, and announced the winner: Manny!
