2015 Student Design Art Architecture Competition

This program is a Downtown Market, inspired by the need for food and shopping for local residents, professionals and the public within the central business district of Dayton.  The project will feature the adaptive reuse of the existing Gentile Building.  The primary focus of the Downtown Market is to provide groceries, but a secondary service of the participant’s choosing is also required.

The program is designed for college-bound high school students, grades 9 through 12, interested in art, architecture, or design.  The competition is open to all students within AIA Dayton’s nine-county geographic region (Champaign, Clark, Darke, Greene, Logan, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, and Shelby Counties) and/or zip codes beginning with 453, 454, 455, and 458.

AIA Dayton has been sponsoring this program for 30 years.  Additional sponsors of the event are Heapy Engineering, Sinclair Community College, Greater Dayton RTA, and Anderson Windows.  Special assistance is provided by the Miami University AIAS Chapter.

The event is limited to the first 60 students who return registration forms with the $25 per student registration fee.  Teachers and advisors are encouraged to share in the fun and can register at no charge.
