Congratulations! University of Michigan Team wins Gerald D. Hines Student Urban Design Competition

The University of Michigan had not one but two groups that ended up in the finals of this Urban Design competition with one coming out champion, a project called Houses.
The winning project proposal reads:
The Mount Baker station, at the intersection of Rainier Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Way, is surrounded by property that is currently being used for large parking lots, two heavily-traveled thoroughfares, and single-family detached residential properties. The competition challenge: devising a scheme that would transform and brand the neighborhood with an identity, and serve as a benchmark for future development in the Greater Seattle region.
Check out this site to read up more on how they did it, and to see the results!
