2016 Film Challenge Invites filmmakers and architects to produce short films that demonstrate the impact design can have on a community

With the success of the inaugural 'I Look Up' Film Challenge, the AIA has launched a new film challenge inviting filmmakers and architects to team-up to produce short films that demonstrates architecture as a solution.  Registration is open now through July 10 for individuals who wish to participate. The challenge will run from July 18 to August 14, and winners will be announced in September 2016.  To learn more about how to register, visit:

Winners will receive cash prizes and will have their film screened at the Architecture & Design Film Festival and SXSW Eco Conference.

Last year, the 'I Look Up' Film Challenge garnered 26 short films, with one grand prize winner, “My City Listens,” two runner-ups, and a People’s Choice award.  The 2016 Film Challenge kicked off with the debut of a short documentary film on Rural Studio, Auburn University’s community-oriented, design-build program dedicated to improving the western Alabama region with good design.

The winners of the 35th annual Art in Architecture Student Design Competition were recognized April 10 at an Awards Reception at Heapy Engineering attended by approximately 60 students, parents, school advisors and AIA Dayton members.

The program, a downtown Urban Gallery and Loft (the adaptive reuse of the existing Oriel Building) was open to college-bound high school students interested in art, architecture, or design.   Fifty-five students from seven area high schools participated in the program.

The winners were Timmy Hutchins, a junior at Oakwood High School, who was awarded the Top Design Award and a $750 Heapy Engineering college scholarship.Nathan Hess, a senior at Oakwood High School, won the Merit Award and a $500 scholarship.  Reyhan Motlagh, a junior at Oakwood High School, was awarded the Sinclair Community College Pathways Scholarship for one semester of classes.

Two Honorable Mention Book Awards of $100 each, and the book “Becoming an Architect,” were awarded to Matt Stover, a junior an Oakwood High School and Austin Fuchs, a junior at Chaminade Julienne High School.

An award for the Most Creative Use of Materials went to Chaminade Julienne High School Junior, Sara Bowman; while Beavercreek High School senior Michael Rick received the Future Architect Award.  

Rounding out the prizes and receiving the Master Craftsman award for the best presentation, was Aaron Plas, an Upper Valley Career Center senior.  

Thanks to sponsors Heapy Engineering, Sinclair Community College, RTA and WD Partners for their generous contributions to the event.

The 2016 program, Urban Gallery and Lofts, is inspired by the need for first floor activation spaces and urban revitalization for the downtown city of Dayton. The project will feature the adaptive reuse of two connected buildings, the Oriel Studios building, 135-137 East Third Street, Dayton (on the northwest corner of East Third Street and N. Saint Clair). The building owner and our "client" would like to see the first floor be recreated as a commercial business such as a retail space, art gallery or cafe/restaurant.
