LEXINGTON, Ky., Jun 3, 2013 — Five teams from local architecture firms competed in the AIA East Kentucky Design Slam 2013 today, raising $7000 for Habitat for Humanity. Team JIM, composed of Josh Duddey, Ian McHone and Magda Wala — all of EOP Architects — took first place and the prize known as the Golden T-Square.
The slam, held at West Sixth Brewing Co., challenged the five teams to come up with a downtown trailhead at 137 West Main Street for the bike-and-walking path known as the Legacy Trail.
Each team had one hour to come up with a design — a process that might normally take six months.
AIA East Kentucky President Daniel Ware commented, “None of the designs will get the OK. It’s just for fun.”
