Juan Vega and Ana Moreno Take 1st Place in Walk on Water Event


On November 9, 2017, the FIU College of Communication, Architecture + The Arts (CARTA) and the FIU Department of Architecture hosted another successful Walk on Water event.

In its 28th consecutive year, the Walk on Water competition attracted hundreds of spectators, local news outlets, and 40 student teams as participants. This year, FIU student team of Juan Vega and Ana Moreno took 1st place and broke the record of 1 min and 3 seconds. The team received a scholarship of $1,000 and was awarded an additional $1,000 for breaking the record. Title sponsor, CGI Windows & Doors presented the winners with the award.

The competition was also opened to external universities and international participants. Jao Pedro Saraiva, an architecture major from Palm Beach State College, won the external scholarship and Lillián Esqueda Mena, a marketing and communication major from Tecnológico de Monterrey in Mexico, was the international scholarship winner. Both participants traveled to Miami to participate in the architecture design event.

Congratulations to all participants, sponsors, and organizers who made this event possible. Special thanks to CGI Windows & Doors and South Motors Miami for supporting CARTA and the Department of Architecture.
