Another good showing in real life competition by a group of FIU students. This time 2 FIU graduate students are among the national finalists in a group of 49 students to design a sustainable home in an area of New Orleans with certain specifications. The students have to come from regional qualifications, where FIU students....in yet another:

show of "extraodinary design force", FIU students swept the Student Category of the USGBC South Florida Chapter, winning the top three spots and beating out participants from the University of Miami, among other competitors. Placing first was Merino. Graduate architecture student Ed Seymour came in second, and the FIU duo of Amir Melloul and Michele Markovits took third.

Lanza mistakenly entered her design in the Louisiana Chapter’s competition. Her first-place award set up the unusual circumstance of having two FIU students in the national finals.


Congrats to these individual FIU students, and to the Architecture program as well.
