Skanska Announces Winners of AIA Living the Box Competition
PARSIPPANY, N.J. – Skanska USA Building Inc., along with the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) Newark and Suburban and Young Architects Forum, announced the winners of the AIA Living The Box Competition.
The winners, chosen from 140 international entries from 21 countries and 32 states, submitted innovative, visionary and compelling proposals for container constructed multi-family, mixed-use projects using shipping containers as the primary element of construction. The contest site was an urban environment directly adjacent to the Newark Broad Street Train station in Newark, N.J.
The top three winners that were selected by the jury, NewPark, Modulaire and Lego + Farm, will be exhibited at the NJSOA Gallery, and will be published in Dwell Magazine, the New York Times and The Newark Star-Ledger.
Skanska was a leading sponsor of this event. Bill Flemming, Skanska’s Co-COO, served as a member of the jury. Skanska’s Kevin McCormick, Senior Estimator and trustee of the Newark Suburban Chapter of AIA, was involved in the planning and coordinating of the Live The Box competition.
“This was an exciting competition with submissions from architects, engineers and students from around the world,” said McCormick. “Skanska is proud to be part of an event that illustrates our commitment to sustainable design and modular construction.”
