On May 4, 2017 AIA NJ President, Ben Lee, AIA, Immediate Past President, Justin Mihalik, AIA and NJIT Associate Dean for Academics, John Cays, along with a Sussex County Board Member were invited to serve as design jury for the Senior Projects at Sussex County Technical School.
Two project teams made their presentations:
One for conversion of a barn into a residence. They completed site & zoning research. The building design was based on taking advantage of the views. They produced a computer 3D image as well as a scale model.
The second project was to convert a school bus to an eco-friendly mobile home for travel and demonstration of eco-friendly design components and built-in furniture and furnishings.
Both teams showed dedication and tremendous effort and investment. Some of the seniors plan to pursuit architectural education.
