Chris Lee and Rory Heath of Dalhousie University, winners of the 2001-2002 Steel Structures Education Foundation (SSEF) student design competition (see CA, Aug. 2002) will see their design for a bus shelter built in Halifax. The Director of the School of Architecture at Dalhousie has sought and secured agreements with both the Transit Authority of Halifax and the university to have the winning design built on Barrington Street, a windy downtown site that sees a heavy flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The SSEF student architectural competition is Canada’s only design competition for students of architecture only, and calls for an integration of technology and concept.
