GRAPHISOFT Student Design Competition

GRAPHISOFT North America announces an exciting student design competition that challenges you to position Philadelphia’s rich history in front of the millions of tourists who visit it annually. The City of Brotherly Love hosts dozens of concerts, conventions, sporting events, and festivals – so the draw is there, but what the city lacks are temporary mobile visitor centers that can be brought to those venues and welcome event attendees.

In this national one-stage competition – all US-based architecture students (graduate or undergraduate) will be challenged to develop and design a mobile visitors’ center using shipping containers which could be constructed in various locations around the city of Philadelphia.

A total of $3,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third place winners.

NJIT Design Showcase 2016

College of Architecture and Design Design Showcase 2016

njit_coadThe College of Architecture and Design at NJIT hosts its annual Design Showcase event in April of each year. This fundraising/networking event will be in its 10th year in 2016 and has grown into an incredible success over the years.

April 7, 2016
Weston Hall Gallery
5 – 9 pm

During the course of the evening, we provide an industry related lecture (good for CEU credits), networking between alumni and sponsors, and an exhibit showing the work of our top students which leads to internships and entry level hires in many firms.

The money raised from the event goes directly back to the students in the form of scholarships, architecture environment enhancements, and this past year the introduction of a 3D print lab which is run on a volunteer basis by our local AIAS chapter. 

This venue is an excellent opportunity to bring together current students, past students, and industry professionals. Whether an alum of NJIT or not, we would welcome any AIANJ member who would like to support the school, the students, and the growth of our program.

AIA-NJ Committee Seeks to Collaborate with Municipalities on Design Competitions

Emerging Professionals Committee announces new leadership for re-launched program, plans to assist non-profits and municipalities on small-scale projects

AIA-NJAIA-NJ announced the new leadership of its Emerging Professionals Committee, which represents New Jersey architectural students and their new graduates as well as recently licensed architects.

Tasked with guiding and supporting the careers of aspiring and new architects – approximately 300 of whom operate in New Jersey – the recently re-launched committee will be chaired by Jessica O’Donnell, AIA, and advised by Nicholas Caravella, Assoc. AIA, and Ryan Day, AIA.

With the dual goal of supporting communities and promoting the professional growth of its constituents, the committee is seeking to find ways for emerging professionals to volunteer their services for the betterment of their communities. They hope to collaborate with local municipalities and not-for-profit institutions on small-scale projects for which emerging professionals will team with an experienced architect, providing design solutions to the organizations while benefitting from the learning opportunity inherent in the process.

The committee intends to work with organizations in need of these services through design competitions, providing participants with firsthand project experience and the winning submission with prize money as compensation.

“Engaging our newest and youngest members is a priority for AIA-NJ, and it’s excellent to see the revitalized committee’s hard work to improve our outreach to our rising stars,” said Kim Bunn, president of AIA-NJ. “Many community centers, nonprofits and municipalities can benefit from the design ability of our interns and young professionals and we’re extremely proud of the committee leadership for bringing this initiative to light.”

The committee also has three directors: Grace Friedhoff, Assoc. AIA, who is tasked with leading service initiatives; Megan Pritts, Assoc. AIA, who will lead advocacy efforts; and Mark Barone, AIA, who will oversee educational programming.

In addition to its service, advocacy and educational activities, committee members will also engage in community work, including mentoring high school students interested in architecture.

“There are many municipalities and nonprofits that will find the sort of collaboration we are proposing invaluable,” said Caravella, who has personally worked with the city of Newark on such initiatives in the past. “Whether designing a parklet in urban areas or working on renovations for community cultural centers, there are a variety of design projects of the appropriate scope and size in every county in the state. As members of the architectural profession, we constantly strive to better serve the community, and this is an ideal opportunity for emerging professionals to utilize their capabilities in a way that truly benefits society.”

If you are interested in collaborating with Emerging Professionals on a project, please contact the committee’s board of directors at [email protected] .
