Juniors Honored in Local Architecture Competition

Two juniors were recognized as winners in the American Institute of Architects, Dayton Chapter (AIA Dayton) 37th annual Art in Architecture Student Design Competition. Max Baldwin ‘20 and Cooper Mullins ‘20 entered the competition as part of a class assignment in their Civil Engineering and Architecture class.

“I'm honored to have been recognized,” said Baldwin. “I intend to pursue a career in engineering, so it's super cool to have been acknowledged for my art before even starting my career.”

Mullins agreed, “It's nice to see that people recognize my hard work”

According to the AIA Dayton website, “This year’s project was to design a tiny house on a site located in northwest Dayton, Ohio. The program was open to college-bound high school students, grades 9 through 12, interested in art, architecture, or design in Champaign, Clark, Darke, Greene, Logan, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, and Shelby Counties. 52 students from nine area high schools participated in the program. Students were assisted with this project by their high school advisers as well as a team of architects and associate architects from AIA Dayton.”

“My favorite part of the project was seeing my ideas become a reality,” shared Mullins.

“I really enjoyed being able to utilize both my creative and mathematical sides to do something awesome,” reflected Baldwin.

Both Baldwin and Mullins received Honorable Mention Book Awards of $200 each, provided by Synergy Building and Bowser-Morner Inc.
