Results of The Student Competition on The Footbridge
Last 2 September, at the Central Society of Architects in Buenos Aires (SCA) were announced the results of the student competition.
The prize-winning projects proposed various interpretations, from minimalist interventions on the footbridge linking the station to the campus, to radical change of the motorway into an urban boulevard, with traffic lights and a reduced speed limit.
The jury, presided by Marcel Smets, awarded the following teams:
- First prize : Marcos Altgelt and Segundo Denegri; Tutor: Constanza Nuñez
- Second prizes ex aequo : Rodrigo Di Cesare, Ignacio Di Gilio, Lautaro Vogel and Emir Zuain; tutor: Juan Carlos Etulain
