Business students from the Center for Sustainable Business Practices worked with with master's candidates from the architecture and landscape architecture programs to compete in the ULI/Gerald D. Hines Urban Design Competition. "The MBAs wanted to really crunch the numbers before putting pencil to paper," said MBA candidate Andy Fenstermacher. "At times this clashed with the design students who were definitely more eager to start drawing." Once their differences were resolved, the team forged ahead, taking just fifteen days to complete their examination of how a site in Seattle could capitalize on its new light rail station. All the hard work paid off: their entry "Water Scapes" won an honorable mention for "Comprehensive Thinking about the Water Cycle." Get more details and view a PDF of the final project.
