Architecture graduate students receive 2009 Open Architecture Challenge honorable mention

School of Architecture graduate students Darin Duch, Peter Portilla, and Ben Delwiche have received an honorable mention in the 2009 Open Architecture Challenge. The trio's project, "Modular Adaptability," called for the design of a modular, portable classroom that is adaptable to a variety of educational requirements. "When the structure itself is thus integrated into the curriculum, the portable classroom becomes more than just an enclosure to hold class, it becomes a tool for learning," write the students in their project description. The classroom was designed for the Northrop School in Minneapolis. The students' advisor for the project was John Comazzi (Architecture).
