Riley Griggs wins scholarships in ninth-annual MANKO Design Competition
MANHATTAN — Two architecture students in the Master of Architecture program in the College of Architecture, Planning & Design at Kansas State University are scholarship winners in the ninth annual design competition sponsored by MANKO Window Systems. The event was hosted virtually on Dec. 4.
Riley Griggs, a fourth-year architecture student from Clay Center, is receiving a $2,000 runner-up scholarship for his mid-rise mixed-use project in Austin, Texas, for assistant professor Grant Alford's studio.
Justin Grim, a fourth-year architecture student, of Schnecksville, Pa., is receiving a $5,000 scholarship as competition winner for his project "Sybiosis, Genesis Center and Abiotic Development and Application" from associate professor Genevieve Baudoin's studio. The design was an assignment in his fourth-year comprehensive studio class, requiring students to integrate conceptual and technical knowledge into a highly resolved building proposal.
Following a review, one student from each of the department's five fourth-year studios was selected to compete for the MANKO awards, with each developing a narrative slide presentation to present to jurors, who were all established practitioners in the field.
The competition jury included professional architects and faculty members from Wichita, the University of Texas and the University of New Mexico.
