Undergraduates sweep CASA awards

Each year CASA-ACEA put out a call for submissions from architecture students across Canada. Student work is displayed and shared in as part of a Nation Student Work Showcase. Check out our most recent call for submissions.

Several Waterloo Architecture undergraduate projects were recognized at this year's showcase.

Nicole Cao: Solar Steps - 3rd/4th year
Derek Shin: Infill Village - 1st/2nd year

The 2021-22 competition theme asked students in Canadian schools of architecture to design a pedestrian bridge that spans two sites “to establish a meaningful connection. The bridge, by its elegance and gesture, should draw attention and be the symbol of a link between an origin and destination.”

Hive is an interlocking masonry wall composed of 175 unique 3D-printed clay bricks. Combining traditional ceramics, smart geometry and robotic precision, the design embraces the natural material properties of clay, allowing its malleability and fluidity to shape the clay units’ form and surface quality.
