2013 NOMA Student Design Competition



2013 NOMA Student Design Competition
The Community "Connector"
Deadline: September 27, 2013

Do you need Practice Credits? Want to know how you can join a winning tradition and compete against big-name design schools on a national stage? This is a great opportunity for you to develop portfolio-worthy work and be recognized by design professionals and students nationwide!

The National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) is issuing a challenge to design a carbon neutral mixed used transit oriented development (TOD) that will "connect people to people and people to places." The design requires entrants to use innovative techniques while balancing the rich history of the site and the principals of the Smart Growth Initiatives for the City of Indianapolis.

This design competition calls for the development of a carbon neutral mixed-used transit oriented development to be located at the intersection of E 25th Street and the Monon Trail. The proposed facility should create a node of local services connecting the adjacent communities of Martingdale-Brightwood and King Park.

More competition details and requirements can be found by clicking here.

BAC NOMAS will look to develop a team of students to work on the project and present their work at the 2013 NOMA Conference, this October in Indianapolis, Indiana. Any BAC student at any level of the program is welcome to participate!

To find out how you can be involved, join BAC NOMAS at this Friday's General Body Meeting, or contact them at bacnomas@the-bac.edu.
