Concrete Classroom winners announced

The Tilt-Up Concrete Association has announced the winners of The Concrete Classroom 2010, an international design competition. The winners were judged in the following areas: creative/ aesthetic use of tilt-up concrete in the design solution; tilt-up concrete design contribution to sustainability; quality of overall concept, design and layout; and overall sustainable solution. The first-place winners were Jong Lee Fung and William Ng from the University of Malaya, based in Malaysia. Their solution includes a building comprised of several free-standing planar pieces that seemed to interlock with each other. It’s intended to change the perception that tilt-up buildings are boxy. Second place went to Josh Robbins of the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture at the University of Houston. He focused his design on three points — program needs, site conditions and design goals. The team of Matt Garippa and Trevor Roeske from Alfred State College, based in New York, earned third place. Incorporating curved wall panels with various textures and colors, their building was orientated so that people viewing the building from a major road would be able to focus on the massive sculptural curved wall. Honorable mention winners were Martin Henning and Kurt Schrader, from Alfred State College, and James Allen and Matthew Mott, also from Alfred State College. ? www.tilt-up.org
