The Architectural Engineering Design Competition introduces engineering and architectural students to the conceptual design development of a structure. The exercise is intended to simulate day-to-day activities of a practicing engineer and architect, working together to find highly-functional and architecturally-expressive design solutions.
This competition asks students to design an observation tower at Prospect Point in Stanley Park. The tower must provide a 360° view and have a footprint no greater than 8m x 8m. Teams are encouraged to consider constructability, construction time, cost and aesthetics.
Last year's winners for first and second prize are identified below. Special thanks go to the architects at Perkins + Will who helped judge the entries.
"The winning design stands out as it is well thought-out with regards to spatial experience and structural efficiency, and building elements perform multiple functions. The design also considers practical issues associated with remote locations such as installation and building usage."
