The Graduate 2017-2018 Gateway Design Studio at the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism competed in the Committee of the Environment (COTE) Top 10 ACSA (Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture) competition and we are delighted to announce that our M.Arch student, Justin Yan has won! Ten students from across North America took top prize and the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism is the only Canadian School of Architecture to be represented in the winning group, which included over 1000 participants from schools of architecture around the world.
Justin was advised by Professor Sheryl Boyle and Visiting Professor Claudio Sgarbi for his project “CityCenter Glassworks.” The American Institute of Architects Committee on the Environment (AIA COTE), in partnership with the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) and in collaboration with Architecture 2030, selected the recipients of the 2018 AIA COTE Top Ten for Students: INNOVATION 2030 Competition. The competition recognized ten exceptional studio projects that demonstrate designs moving towards carbon-neutral operation through creative and innovative integration of design strategies such as daylighting, passive heating and cooling, materials, water, energy generation, and sustainable systems. The program challenged students to submit projects that use a thoroughly integrated approach to architecture, natural systems, and technology to provide architectural solutions that protect and enhance the environment. The jury for the 2018 AIA COTE Top Ten for Students: INNOVATION 2030 Competition includes: Karin Bjorkman, Nola | Van Puersem Architects; Justin Brown, MASS Design Group; Chris Chatto, ZGF Architects; Thomas Fisher, University of Minnesota; and Jeanne Gang & Juliane Wolf, Studio Gang.
Of Justin’s project, the jury had this to say: “This adaptive reuse project utilizes the heat from making glass to warm the building and save on energy; a superb adaptation for the Ottawan climate. The buildings programs and systems are well designed and tailored for each other. A wonderful example of this is the rising mist, created from residual heat, brings an element of delight to the project. The architectural exploration is plausible and grounded in reality.”
Congratulations to Justin and Professors Boyle and Sgarbi!
