Washington, DC – August 20, 2018 –  The American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) is proud to announce the winners of the summer In Studio Made competition in conjunction with American Galvanizers Association (AGA).

The AGA is dedicated to the education of students and continues to visit campuses across the United States and Canada to educate future architects through the Galvanize Your Campus program. Learn more about their University program here.

The In Studio: Made competition asked students to research the design and fabrication properties of hot-dip galvanizing and then sketch or model a sculpture, building facade, parking garage, outdoor recreation/entertainment structure, etc. that could be physically built out of hot-dip galvanized steel. Additionally, the AGA will also be working with the winners of In Studio: Made to potentially make their designs into a reality!
