Two projects by University at Buffalo architects – a sculptural wall at Silo City and a minimalist dining set that folds up into a compact cube – are finalists in the international Architizer A+ Awards, a prestigious competition in the world of architecture and design.
The public has through Friday to vote for each in Popular Choice Award contests at https://awards.architizer.com/public/voting/?all=1.
Projext 2XmT is a sculptural wall crafted from more than 150 pieces of super-thin steel folded into geometric patterns. Nicholas Bruscia, clinical assistant professor of architecture, and Christoper Romano, research assistant professor of architecture, led design and construction. It’s nominated in two categories, Architecture + Materials and Architecture + Fabrication.
The dining set was designed by assistant professor of architecture Jin Young Song, and is nominated in the Products + Living category.
Both are also up for jury awards to be decided by a global panel.
