Igor Bialorucki, a student at Warsaw University of Technology/University of Detroit Mercy, and Yekaterina Artemchuk of McGill University have been awarded first place in the 2010-2011 Steel Design Student Competition. Administered by the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) and sponsored by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), the program challenges students, working individually or in teams, to explore a variety of design issues related to the use of steel as the primary structural material in design and construction.
This year’s competition had two entry categories. The first challenged entrants to develop a program for a homeless assistance center that would act as a bridge to preparing residents for re-entrance into society, and to execute the program by designing a facility on an urban site of the student and/or faculty advisor’s choosing. The second category was an Open category, which allowed students to design any building type with the goal of maximizing flexibility.
