DASH High School in the Design District in Miami has an annual senior jury and exhibition. Eight jurors were selected from architecture and industrial design practices. The Carlos and Rosa de la Cruz and the Knight Foundation awarded $42,000 of scholarship to the participating students. Below is a description of the project that was judged.
"Senior Architecture and Industrial Design students are now participating in a rigorous process designing a Transit Oriented Development for the Design District. “Transportation Hub for Miami Design District” is a competition with scholarship awards sponsored by Carlos and Rosa de la Cruz and The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The theoretical design project is located on a piece of vacant land adjacent to the FEC Railway between 36th and 38th Streets in the Miami Design District.
Students will design a building form and modes of transportation and prepare two and three-dimensional drawings and models for the conception in the Design District. DASH has played a major role in the rebirth of the Miami Design District and the students are being asked to treat the new design as a generator of movement for the Design District."
