Kent State University graduate students Jeff Jasinski of Wickliffe, Ohio, and Matt Dureiko of Stow, Ohio, both enrolled in the architecture and urban design program, placed second in an international design competition. The DawnTown 2014 Alternative Mobilities design competition, sponsored by the Miami Downtown Development Authority, asked designers to create a central hub where routes people take to move around downtown could meet. The proposal would boost Miami’s transportation network.
Kent State University’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design will offer three new master’s degrees beginning in fall 2014.

The presentation takes place Thursday, Jan. 16, at 7 p.m. in University Auditorium at Cartwright Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
