TEX FAB competition 2014 winner announced!

"We are extremely excited to announce the winner of the Plasticity Competition at ACADIA Design Agency conference chosen by the jury to move forward into the process of design development, engineering and fabrication.  Coupled with the support from TEX-FAB we are pleased to be joined by Kreysler and Associates who will provide technical support and fabrication expertise to complete the work to be installed in Houston at the next annual event March 26-29 hosted by University of Houston College of Architecture.

The event at USC hosted by David Gerber, Alvin Huang and Jose Sanchez set a new bar for the organization and we appreciated the exposure we could share with the finalists who attended including Alexandra Singer-Bieder from the Viscoplasty in Paris and the entire Puff'd team including Nel Long, Bennen Huller and Nikita Troufanov coming over from SCI-Arc who shared their great efforts and inventive use of composites with the international community who attended.

We look forward to the next phase of development and invite everyone to Houston next spring to see the results."
(official announcement from TEX-FAB, see the full press release here)

SAC is proud that APD graduate Vasily Sitnikov made it up to the best four competitors out of 70!
