The American Institute of Architecture Students and Kawneer Co., Inc. recently announced the winners of the “Crisis-Ready Stadium” national student design competition. Sponsored by Kawneer and administered by the AIAS, the competition challenged students to learn about building materials, specifically architectural aluminum building products and systems in the design of a crisis-ready stadium, civic center or arena.
