Tackling Immigration with Architecture and a Napkin

The architecture students from the University of Maryland set a tough challenge for this year's Napkin Sketch Contest at the 2018 Design + Leadership Gala: "How can architecture address immigration?" Take a look at the entries and winning sketches! The third place winner was Wendy Amaya, a UMD student herself; second place went to Helen Wilkes, AIA, who said it's the first year she has ever entered the contest; and first place went to Taylor Maher, who is not an architect, but a sustainble energy advocate and board member of the Potomac Valley Architecture Foundation. Congratulations to all!

Thanks to our Napkin Sketch Sponsors - Grimm + Parker Architects, Lee/Shoemaker, and Inter-Lux!
