ACSA 2016 - 2017 Student Design Competition Here and Now Competition

The American Institute of Architects, Custom Residential Architects Network (AIA CRAN), and ACSA, have selected the recipients of the 2017 HERE + NOW: A House for the 21st Century Residential Student Design Competition. The competition recognizes seven exceptional studio projects that seamlessly integrate innovative, regenerative strategies within their broader design concepts. The program challenged students to submit projects that provide architecture students, with a platform to explore residential architecture and residential architectural practice. 

The jury for the HERE+NOW Housing Competition included: Aaron Bowman, Liollio Architecture (Charleston, South Carolina); Patricia Seitz, Massachusetts College of Art and Design (Boston, Massachusetts); and Emily Roush-Elliott, Delta Design Build Workshop (Greenwood, MS).
