The annual conference born of an educational non-profit program known as EAST® Initiative(Environmental and Spatial Technology), has wrapped for 2018. This year high school and middle school students in more than 200 schools across the country showcased their work, collaborated with peers, got excited about their future and so much more. GRAPHISOFT is proud to support this unique program which brings technology into the hands of students.
As a sponsor, GRAPHISOFT North America would like to congratulate all of this year’s EAST Competition winners. Of special note, Miles Hermann from Hot Springs High School took the top prize for his project “The Bill Clinton Presentation Center”.
According to Miles, “At Hot Springs High School, there is a very prevalent need for better facilities to gather parents and students alike. We need a place where we can develop better learning environments with the help of technology and inclusive architecture.”
Hermann used ARCHICAD 21 to create a solution to the problem he identified. He relied on ARCHICAD 21 to design his vision for the Bill Clinton Presentation Center, a modern and fully ADA-compliant facility.
“ARCHICAD created the bridge between possibility of the imagination to the design of the reality. This program provided the best use of tools to effectively create the most complex design possible in the amount of time allotted.”
Hermann also won the Fay Jones Architecture prize for his ARCHICAD project. GRAPHISOFT North America awarded Herman a $100 gift card and trophy for his outstanding achievement. We were also pleased to present runner-up, Madison Mullen from Manila High School a $75 gift card and GRAPHISOFT branded Google Cardboard VR reader for her restaurant project. A second runner-up, Carlee Bird from Buffalo Island Central High School received a $50 gift card and branded Goggle Cardboard VR reader as well for her Buffalo Island Central High School New Construction Project.
Congratulations to all the winners!
