Seniors Ethan Young of Jefferson and Austin Marshall of Raleigh are the winners of the Third Annual Appalachian State University NCMCA Sigmon Memorial Design Competition held in Boone in March. Young and Marshall will share a semester's tuition as their prize.
Seven teams of two participated in the competition to design and model a hypothetical masonry in-fill building section as a graded assignment in the ASU Architectural Design Studio IV class.
