image1On Thursday, April 14th, the FIU School of Architecture hosted the 2016 Studio Culture Furniture Design Competition.

The competition asked for  “designed improvements” for the current treatment of the dead-end corridors on the west side of the 2nd and 3rd floors of the FIU Paul L. Cejas School of Architecture building. The goal for each student submission was to create a proposal that would be engaging to fellow students, embrace studio culture, and showcase the design caliber of The FIU College of Architecture + The Arts (CARTA). The winning design will have the opportunity to be constructed over the Summer of 2016 with the cost of material covered by FIU CARTA.
