perFORM 2016 Winners
The third annual perFORM Building Design Competition called for architectural students and interns to design a net zero energy, mixed-use, multifamily building in the Rainier Beach neighborhood of Seattle, WA. Group and individual entries were judged based on design, energy, and community response. Resourcefulness, replicability, adaptability (future proofing), and beauty were also considered.
This year’s winning entry came from a group of DIALOG interns and one student in Vancouver, BC. The group won the first prize of $4,000 for their “GrowHouse” project. The runner-up prize of $2,000 went to an individual submission from Masoud Sharikzadeh, a student from University of Arizona.
