Awards Presentation

This year’s project was the design of a two-unit residential duplex for the Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority (LMHA).  Students were challenged to create a functional living unit that met the needs of affordable housing while addressing many factors such as balancing public/private spaces; responding to site factors and orientation; incorporating sustainable concepts; providing universal access; and, most importantly, designing a building that someone could call “home.”

We are pleased to announce that Mr. Michael Cadwell of The Ohio State University will be speaking at the awards ceremony.  He is a Walter H. Kidd Professor and the Director of OSU’s Knowlton School of Architecture.

Representatives from LMHA & AIA Toledo will also be in attendance and will be presenting awards for the winning entries.

We strongly encourage professional members of our Chapter to attend this highly-supported community outreach program, regardless of previous level of participation.  It is a great opportunity to observe and even influence the future of our profession.

  • Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority
