A redevelopment plan drafted by an interdisciplinary team from the School of Architecture + Planning has been chosen as the winning scheme in the seventh-annual Gerald D. Hines Student Urban Design Competition of the Urban Land Institute.
The SA+P team competed against 91 teams from 42 universities — including North America’s top schools in urban design, architecture and landscape architecture — a field that was then narrowed to four finalists.
Sharing the top prize of $50,000, the SA+P team included MCP candidates Blair Humphreys, Jesse Hunting and Sarah Snider; MArch candidate Duncan McIlvaine; and Eric Komppa of the University of Wisconsin, an MBA student specializing in real estate. Their advisor was Tunney Lee.
