Student Contest
The College of Architecture would like to congratulate Meadow Rose Pirigyi and Kaitlin Frankforter who were both placed as finalist in Archistart's "Carpineto Mountain Refuge" competition.

Architecture Instructor Jason Griffiths incorporated the competition as one of the ARCH 510/610 graduate design studio projects.

The competition was designed to promote the territory and the landscape of the Lepine Mountains through a series of temporary hiker observation/rest areas near the main mountain paths that go from the valley to the mountain tops that surround Carpineto, rethinking the old mountain huts in a contemporary way.

Pirigyi submitted a design entitled "Carpineto/Carapace" that was functional, flexible and durable while being unobtrusive to the landscape.

Frankforter's design entitled "Entropic Light" uses entropic patterning to mimic the different stages of the hike creating a place of solace and refuge.

Archistart is a non-profit organization that aims to propose architectural competitions accessible to undergraduate and recent graduates.

Please help us congratulate these students on this noteworthy accomplishment!
