2011 Intern /YA Design Competition
The AIANH Intern/Young Architect Design Competition was created to provide an opportunity for interns and young architectural professionals to strengthen their design skills, gain recognition, and assist a community with their design challenges. It is open to all architectural interns and architects within five years of registration living or working in New England. Participants do not need to be members of AIA.
2011 Competition Results
The 2011 competition was for the Architectural Engineering Department at the New Hampshire Technical Institute, Concord's Community College, to create a school of architecture for an expanded program.

This design took a novel approach at master planning the entire campus not only for the design competition but for the future of the Institution. The strategy presented was to create a bold new axial path the slices though the campus linking proposed quadrangles with current buildings on the campus with future campus housing. It clearly addressed the Institutions issues of parking. The scale of the AET building flows seamlessly with the rest of the campus. It’s an interesting design that’s practical with a clear organizational strategy that fits appropriately within the site and campus. This is a well-developed proposal.

The massing and organization of this proposal is simple and easy to navigate. Jurors enjoyed the opening gesture the building created when viewed from the I-93 highway. The creation of the green roof overlooking the pond would be a relaxing escape for students. Although the entry seems disproportionately large for the building, it does not take away from the overall theme of the building.
Anthony Nazaka, Black Bear Drafting LLC, Manchester, NH
This design created an interesting overall massing strategy. Since the building location is in direct view of I-93, the grand use of photovoltaic panels presents a bold statement of a commitment to sustainability for NHTI. It appears that these panels would easily supply enough power to the entire building. Overall an interesting presentation.
