OHS Student Architects' Design Chosen for Contest
The Orange High School student team of Iris Gerzenshtein and Adam Rukin earned a top 10 finish in the 16th Annual Student Model Home Design Contest. They won an award and had their design on display at the IX center during “The Great Big Home and Garden Expo 2013” earlier this month.
OHS entered three teams in this year’s contest. The students worked hard and were given professional feedback about their designs from several architects and designers from Geis Companies. Joining Gerzenshtein and Rukin in the competition were the OHS teams of Max Gordon, Alex Goldstein and Kirill Dubrovsky; and Rachel Tenney, Ammon Artis, Ophir Paz and Peter Healey.
This year’s student contest theme is "Great Spaces in Different Places - A Mixed Use Space To Live And Work”. Students were challenged to design a mixed use commercial/residential structure addition. Using their knowledge of architectural design, green building design technology, and concrete construction, student entries included floor plans and elevation drawings as well as a scaled model. They were judged in 15 separate categories, including design, planning and innovations, energy conserving features, drawing presentation, model presentation, and exterior design.
Geis Companies, North America's premier design/build company, has more than 40 years of experience developing projects and have expertise ranging from site selection through delivering the final product.
