2021 MGMC Honorable Mentions

The 2022 Michael G. Meyers Design & Scholarship Competition recognized 8 Houston-area high school students with special recognition in the catagories of presentation, sketches, renderings, sustainability, narrative and concept, and planning process. The jury and committee were impressed with the amount of consideration and time put into each application and appreciated the students' creative solutions to the 2022 design challenge. Each year the competition is open to Houston area high school students and hosted by Architecture Center Houston in partnership with the Houston Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

The MGMC design competition emphasizes creative problem solving and graphic presentation. This year students were challenged to design a mixed-use living community in the heart of Houston's Montrose neighborhood, adjacent to the Menil campus. The design had to include housing units and community spaces. In previous years students have been asked to design an education center with a focus on sustainability, a community center, animal shelter, a soccer stadium, and a high-speed rail station.  The MGMC Committee hosted a competition workshop and a project site tour to help the students learn basic architectural skills and understand the competition requirements.
