The final week for the ULI competition was very intense for our team. After finally realizing that we needed to start producing final material and stop messing around with architectural concepts, we decided the best way to finish the competition was to divide the group into designers/revit modelers, graphics/diagram person, and financial people. The result was a mediocre design concept that involved the connection of districts into a "LiNK" District as we called it... a district that proved the complete amenities of a successful recreational/business/residential district in a linear fashion. And what I mean by that is we used pedestrian pathways to literally cut through the buildings and infrastructure and serve as the "link" between buildings and structure. The results are shown below, and the final result was something we were all proud of... given we only had 2 very short weeks to produce this.
The project was a success and we learned a lot. And even though we didnt win or even receive an honorable mention, we were satisfied with our final product. We gained an experience that put us ahead of other colleagues in our class who didn't do the competition, and i only wish this competition was incorporated into our curriculum.
