This curtain wall design garnered Siqi Liu of the University of Texas at Austin a $2,500 scholarship as semi-finalist in the Live.Work.Learn student architecture design competition from Boral Bricks.
Brandon Block from Auburn University was the other semi-finalists for his “Border vs. Boundary” concept.
"This is a great execution on an exterior. It's breaking away from the convention and just what we're looking for in an award winner,” said one of the awards’ jurors about Ko’s winning design. Another juror noted, “The brick isn't static, it's moving, it's fun--almost like the layers of the earth—elegant, yet exciting and unexpected."
