Winners of CCCAP Student Design Competition 2015

Winners of CCCAP Student Design Competition 2015 

Over 85 students submitted requests to compete.  By submittal date, thirty-five teams did in fact submit designs.  Fifteen community college architecture programs were included among these 35 submittals. Thank you to all who participated and submitted their entries to the first CCCAP Student Design Competition. The projects show an exciting range of ideas and approaches to the problem of designing a small, movable residence.

Our judges have drawn on their varied backgrounds as they evaluated the projects and have made their final selections. The winning projects are examples of the strong skills that students are developing in community college architecture programs. After reviewing the final results it was clear that in addition to the three winning designs, there were three other designs that excelled so the competition committee has decided to award these three designs an Honorable Mention.

We hope to have all of the entries displayed on our web site in the next few weeks.

Grand Prize: Best Overall

Ivan Hanson and Nicole Liu, Onondaga Community College, Syracuse, NY

Fascinating concept! The theme is carried through the design very well. Space is used very well, and the material choice for the roof makes the design pop. Good use of graphics to explain the concept

Size Prize: Best Design in Terms of Minimum Cubic Footage

Juan Manjarres, Montgomery College, Rockville MD

Very well laid out board and concept. The frame-and-infill design is strong and will probably market well. The graphics are great and especially the renderings show off the design to a good advantage.

Green Prize: Best Design in Terms of Energy Consumption/Environmental Strategies

Jonathan McCafferty, Community College of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA

The focus on environmental strategies is nice, particularly the dual use of PV panels that become a sunshade for the house. Interior views are good but the exterior views need more context – background, pavement/grass/other landscape, and people for scale.

Honorable Mention 

Alessandro Pupillo, Broward College, Davie, FL

The idea of sliding out the long wall is very intriguing; however there may be challenges with the logistics of the weight and realistic ability to actually accomplish it. The aesthetics are nice, with the whiteness of the modern palette broken up with the warmer wood slats. Fantastic interior elevation/cutaway visual! 

Sara Elfallah and Amalie Elfallah, Montgomery College, Rockville MD

Very well laid out board and concept. The frame-and-infill design is strong and will probably market well. The graphics are great and especially the renderings show off the design to a good advantage. 

Eduardo Rodriguez, Oakland Community College, Royal Oak, Michigan

Beautiful drawings and board, with a strong concept. Great job!
