Two months ago, my colleagues Rosa Newman, Andy Wang and I entered the Vermont Living Place competition. It was our first competition and we did not know what to expect.

And just a week ago, we were pleasantly surprised with the news that our design won first place! So, please click here for a detailed description of our entry.
