The association has once again supported the Auburn University School of Architecture and Building Science’s concrete furniture contest. The contest is the culmination of the student’s work during the fall semester. Students are paired into 4 person teams and challenged to design concrete benches that weigh less than 200 pounds but must be able to support 600 pounds. As a result, students are forced to use lightweight materials and make use of steel reinforcement. Students are also judged on the quality of the concrete finish.
The ACIA’s donation is used to reward the winning teams.
The winning projects will be used by the city of Auburn for pedestrian resting areas. Pictured are several of the projects.
