Vectorworks sponsors design competitions at PLANET Student Career Days and LABASH

This month, we were proud to participate in PLANET Student Career Days at Auburn University and LABASH 2013 at the University of Georgia, two national events for landscape architecture, landscape design, and landscape design/build students in the U.S.

We sponsored the PLANET Student Career Days 3D Exterior Landscape Design Competition, a contest to design an exterior landscape for a commercial building with a 2D and 3D representation of proposed features, such as plant material, vertical objects (walls, fences, shade structures, etc.) and walking surfaces.

Guest juror Stephen Schrader, RLA, associate at Holcombe Norton Partners, watches over students in the PLANET Student Career Days 3D Exterior Landscape Design competition.

We also sponsored the Design/Build Charrette at LABASH, in which students designed and constructed a project with Habitat for Humanity and the University of Georgia College of Environment and Design’s Public Service and Outreach Programs. Six teams of students from different universities collaborated to form schematic layouts, and on the last day of the charrette, students worked with local contractors to implement the ideas chosen as winners by professional jury members.

Students discuss their design for the LABASH Design/Build Charrette.
