Students Win First Place in NOMA Student Design Competition

Architecture students in the College of Architecture, Design and Construction’s chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) took first place in this year’s student design competition. Held in conjunction with NOMA’s annual conference in Atlanta, Georgia, October 20–22, 2011, the student design competition challenged teams to balance the historic character of Atlanta’s Washington Park/Vine City communities while developing a new MARTA Transit Village that preserved and enhanced the existing corridor. Competing against 15 teams from across the country, the Auburn team’s design of The Vine City Village won the first place prize of $1,500.  Auburn University’s student team was Damian Bolden, Phillip Ewing, Sarahgrace Godwin, Kyle Johnson, Weng Lon Lao, Tanner Backman, Jordan Cox, Andrew Dolder, Yesufu O'ladipo, and  Laura Taylor.  Dr. Carla Jackson Bell and and Kevin Moore served as faculty advisors for this year's winning team.
