Block ‘12 Wins Top Place in “Live.Work.Learn” Student Architecture Contest at 2012 AIA National Convention

Brandon Block, a May 2012 graduate of the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture, was one of two top winners in the “Live.Work.Learn” student architecture contest announced at the 2012 AIA National Convention in Washington, DC. Sponsored by Boral Bricks, the contest was planned in collaboration with the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) and required students to design a live/work building using brick for 70 percent of the exterior siding. Entries were judged on their excellence in live/work design and creative use of bricks by a panel representing industry leadership in the architecture, brick, and building industries. Block’s winning design was part of his undergraduate comprehensive thesis project developed under the direction of Professor Behzad Nakhjavan.
