The AIA Atlanta High School Student Design Competition is an annual program, aimed at challenging future architects in our region. Working under the guidance of a teacher and relying purely on their own skills and talents, the students are expected to present a design solution for the assigned project. We asked the students to design a New Student Orientation Center for Georgia State University that will host small groups of incoming students and include information on the various degrees offered by the college, student life and other important information about the college.
