As many of you already know, last semester Shawna Hammon's project Woven was selected as one of five finalists (out of 357!) in the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat's (CTBUH) International Student Tall Building Design Competition (whew that was a mouthful, I'm exhausted). Developed as a studio project for Wayne Place's skyscraper studio, Shawna's scheme was predicated on the notion of challenging the public's perception of wood as a feasible structural material for skyscrapers.
Shawna travelled to Shanghai in September along with the other finalists for the final presentations. A link to the article, with further details about final standings, can be found here.
Congrats on this huge honor, Shawna, and thanks for representing NCState so well on the global stage!
