2021 Integrated Design Studio Award Winners

The Integrated Design Studio is a forum that synthesizes four years of architectural education into one project. The course tests the student’s ability to bring a variety of issues to bear; placing concepts, technical systems, material construction, and formal ambition into integrated relationships. Design work from the 2021 IDS class is exemplary of the richness possible when architecture is engaged across its broad disciplinary and cultural range. The high-quality design work from this year’s class is a testament to each student’s education and the fortitude of each group. They transformed complex requirements into highly successful projects under adverse circumstances and have demonstrated their readiness to engage in future education and professional work with equal acumen.
