2015 Senior Design Day and Blue Hat Ceremony
This year, the starting inspiration for the Senior Design projects was Thomas Jefferson’s design of the Rotunda for the University of Virginia. Teams were challenged to reinvestigate and develop options for an Annex design. The ongoing renovation of the Rotunda offered additional opportunities for understanding both the historic construction as well as new design and construction approaches.
The following teams worked all year and presented their final solutions on Tuesday, May 5th. Following the presentations, seniors were awarded their Blue Hats – a trademark gift from the Department.
Team 1: Shizza Fatima, Ann Mendoza, Isaiah Sampson, Octavia Williams
Team 2: John Boutillier, Jonathan Hornyak, Martin Scheuring, Stephen Wong
