Architecture Students Win TWO National Awards NEW!
Congratulations to John Owens and Eric Everley who won national awards in the CCCAP 2016 Student Design Competition. We got the exciting news while leaving for Venice as part of our department's summer Travel Study Program to Italy. This meant John and Eric had an extra special first day in Italy! The CCCAP organization is for community college architecture programs, promoting the exciting work of community college architecture students. The competition was for a Meditation Chapel, completed as part of Professor Ryan’s ACH 212 Studio. John won Third Place and Eric won an Honorable Mention. AACC was the only college to win two awards. Awesome job John and Eric!
Italy Summer Travel Study – A Great Success! NEW!
We had a great time and saw so much wonderful, important and iconic architecture. At times we had to remind ourselves we were seeing the authentic original. We were blessed with great weather, great food and a fun tour director. Check out our photos on our department’s Facebook Page (AACC Architecture, Interior Design and Construction Management). Next year is London, Paris and Amsterdam, so start saving now so you are not left out!
