Architecture Student Wins Design Excellence Award

Each semester one outstanding student from each discipline (architecture, interior architecture, urban design, and graphic design) is recognized with a Design Excellence Award. The award is given to a student who has distinguished himself/herself through diligence, commitment, academic performance, and ideally a student who contributes to a positive, collaborative learning environment in class.

Congratulations to Andrew Stephen Minnich for receiving this award because of his work in Architecture Design studio. During the semester Andrew and his studio friends worked on two assignments under the guidance of DIS Faculty Bo Christiansen. The first one was titled “Microclimatic Shelter: a Place for Hygge,” and the second: “Orestad Chapel: a Place of Silence”.
