Anne Arundel Community College architecture students won both top awards and two Citation Awards in the 2011 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Maryland Student Design Awards Competition for community colleges.
The AIA is a professional membership association for licensed architects.
AACC student Alec Harper won an Excellence in Digital/Hybrid Media award for a Petra Visitor Center project he created in the school's Architectural Design 3 class.
"This is truly an outstanding example of how well prepared our AACC students are to compete with their peers on the state level," said Michael D. Ryan, AACC professor and department chair of architecture, in a prepared statement.
AACC student Daniel Reynolds won the The Prize for Excellence in Hand Delineation for his rendering of the Milwaukee Art Museum created for his "Architectural Design 2" (ACH 112) class. Each of the top award winners receives a $500 cash prize.
