It was recently announced that a professor from Mississippi State University was awarded a $10,000 prize for his architecture design submission for a site off of Australia's Parramatta River, according to Mississippi State University.
The international award was given to Hector Miguel Lasala, a visiting professor to the school, who used a graphite and acrylic painting to showcase his ideas, which gave more room for the judge's ideas.
"Instead of using only computer renderings, what you see on our board is rapidly layered hand drawing," Lasala told the news source. "The collages sought to capture the main concepts, without trying to be too realistic, allowing some room for interpretation."
Lasala's design was chosen out of 150 entries from various countries all over the globe, the media outlet reports.
Individuals who are interested in architecture design may want to know what the job market will be when they graduate from their design programs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in this field is expected to increase by 16 percent between 2008 and 2018.
