The Results are In for the CitiesAlive Student Design Challenge!

A HUGE thank you to all of the teams that submitted a design for the CitiesAlive Student Design Challenge for a new Tenderloin Community Center! The design submissions were viewed over 13,000 times with 2,361 votes cast and the winning entry with 1,043 votes goes to Ellis’ Grove, submitted by the team from Universidad Francisco Marroquin.


By the quality of designs, it is clear that the student teams spent the time to thoroughly examine and develop innovative design solutions which blend operational functionality with optimized ecological and community impact on their concepts. The thoughtfulness, sensitivity, and understanding of the challenge is evident in each submission!  


All teams will receive complimentary exhibition passes to CitiesAlive and will have their designs on display in the expo hall during the CitiesAlive Green Roof and Wall conference in San Francisco on October 23 and 24.  Team Universidad Francisco Marroquin, the winning team, will receive $2000 cash. Teams using Vectorworks as part of their submission will receive a free download of Vectorworks Software.


Thanks again to all participated!
