Each generation of designers and artists tends to follow an overarching trend when it comes to their work. There were the cubists that defined avant-guard artists in the early 20th century, and the Jazz stylings that captured the 1930s and 40s. The current trend in architecture is sustainability and green building.

A group of central Florida architecture students who have embraced this concept to its full extent recently entered the national green-building design competition, a part of the U.S. Green Building Council''s Greenbuild Conference and Expo.

Incorporating renewable materials and the latest in sustainability techniques, the team from Central Florida Community College, the only junior college in the design competition, competed against 25 other student and professional design teams and managed to walk away with second place.

"To be recognized nationally is a great reward for all the students'' hard work, but it also reaffirms that our students have the talent to be successful in the green building industry and can stand their own against designers who are already working in the field," said the teams faculty advisor Ron Wilson in an interview with Star News Online.
