NewSchool students earn two awards at Cal Poly Design Village competition

A team of NewSchool of Architecture and Design students earned two out of five awards at the Cal Poly Design Village 2014 competition held April 11-13.

The students won in the categories of People’s Choice/Most Contagious and Most Habitable at the annual competition at the California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo.

At the competition, students must carry their structure materials three-quarters of a mile, build the structure on site and then live in it for three days and two nights.

The NewSchool team members who won awards for their structure, titled the Rotation of Living, were Guillermo Menjivar, Salvador Vicente, Aipeng Fang and Juan Cruz.

They were one of three NewSchool teams who competed in the event out of a total of 30 student teams.

All teams developed entries based on this year’s design competition’s theme of "Biologics."

The NewSchool teams developed their entries as part of a design studio course taught by instructor Hussein Munaim, who has been instrumental in NewSchool’s participation in the annual event since 1995.
