Architecture student wins $15K in worldwide competition

Proposal Would Create Large Recreational Network in Mumbai


Sabrina Kleinenhammans (SMArchS’09) has won the first place, $15,000 prize
in a student design competition sponsored by AECOM, one of the
country’s largest engineering, environmental, planning and design
companies. The award was presented at the World
Architecture Festival in Barcelona.

The competition
asked teams of students from around the world for creative solutions to address the environmental,
social and economic challenges confronting cities worldwide. Kleinenhammans’ proposal — originally developed in SA+P’s Mumbai

intersecting transportation lines to create a network of open spaces with the potential to increase the city’s recreational landscape by
59 percent.
