Santiago Hinojos takes 2nd place in ISOVER national competition
On April 14, 2011 Jonathan Knowles’ twelve Advanced Design Studio students presented their skyscraper competition projects to the Isover national jury in New York. 30 projects were submitted from around the country. The subject of the 2011 competition is to design a multiple use tower according to ISOVER Multi-Comfort-House energy efficient definition and with passive house components. The participants designed a sustainable skyscraper in a part of Lower Manhattan called Greenwich South. The new high rise is expected to have about 60 floors above a base of 5 stories with the maximum horizontal size of each floor above the base should, according to New York City zoning regulations, not exceed 175′ (about 53.34 m).
RISD student Santiago Hinojos won second place in the national competition: he received a $1,000 prize check and his work is submitted for consideration by the international Isover jury in Prague.
