Congratulations to the 2015 Top 10 Student Winners!

 Their design projects were chosen by a 25-member jury team of architects, engineers, designers, architectural educators, and university professors from 5 different states.

Representing 16 high schools in 11 states, 141 teens created solutions to design or redesign an underutilized space in thier communities into a pocket park to encourage communities to come together and postively activate a space.

Sponsored by the Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF) - a national leader in K-12 architecture and design education - students used DiscoverDesign.org to share their creative work and connect with their peers, as well as teachers and architects across the country.
