ACC Students Show Off “Barkitecture” Skills Nov. 10

ACC students will compete with and auction off this colorful dog house at Barkitecture 2012.

Students from ACC’s American Society of Engineering Education chapter showed off their skills at Barkitecture 2012 – an event that brings together designers and builders to create custom dog houses. Barkitecture took place Nov. 10 in the 2nd Street District in downtown Austin.

Austin’s top architectural designers and builders auctioned off their dog houses, with proceeds benefiting animal rescue groups. The dog houses are judged by a panel, with prizes awarded in various categories. Â Last year, ACC’s team won “most unusual.”

This year, ACC was the winner in the “non-profit” division, which was decided by which dog house had the most raffle ticket sales. ACC’s dog house raised $740.

“This was a great opportunity for our students to put their knowledge to use for a fun event and a great cause,” says Doug Smith, department chair for Architectural and Engineering Computer Aided Design. “We thank everyone who came out to support our students.”

All materials the ACC students used on the project were either donated or recycled.
