Congratulations to the architecture students from the Pedro Henriquez Urena National University (UNPHU) Faculty of Architecture and Arts who took first place within the Dominican Steel Association (Adoacero) competition for 2022. After winning this competition, the scholars will participate within the fifteenth Congress of the Latin American Steel Association (Alacero), which can be held in Brazil in November and have as its primary themes Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure.
The winning students, under the direction of architecture professor Jenny Annelisse Garrido Gautreaux, are Rohanny Urena Mejia, Maria Gabriela Dotel Hernández, and Romina Mejia. They need to now present their project to a global audience at Alacero. Alacero hopes to advertise the design and use of steel in construction amongst students of architecture and related fields all across Latin America with the Steel Design Contest for Architecture Students.
With their project “Centro UV-DA,” the Dominican Steel Association (Adoacero) and a few students from Unphu represented the Dominican Republic in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and took home silver on the twelfth Alacero Congress in 2019.
