George Durante and Diego Rodriguez Renovales, two graduating MURP students, were part of the team that won the 12th Annual Greater Boston Affordable Housing Development Competition at the Boston Society of Architects (sponsored by BSA, Federal Home Loan Bank, CHAPA, Kevin P. Martin & Associates, and ICON Architecture).
The competition requires that each team be comprised of graduate students from at least two universities in the greater Boston area. George and Diego, partnered with students from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.
The team worked on behalf of the Caribbean Integration Community, a non-profit community development corporation based in the Grove Hall area of Boston. They engaged in community outreach, conducted research, and consulted with key organizations and firms to create a development proposal.
