The Mississippi State University School of Architecture’s Tau Sigma Delta (TSD) honor society is excited to announce an exhibit, “Sixty-Nine Seventy: International Ideas Competition.”

This exhibit, which will be on display in the Giles Gallery through September 13, showcases some of the work submitted for an international ideas competition. More than 200 architects and designers from 48 countries and across the U.S. submitted their ideas for making two blocks, sixty-nine and seventy, in the center of downtown Salt Lake a cultural hub to rival any city in America. A nine-member jury selected 15 semifinalists, including the two Jury Award winners, while the People’s Choice Award was selected by more than 22,000 online.

Jacob Gines, assistant professor in the School of Architecture, was one of the original organizers and the proctor for the judging of this competition.

“I am excited to have this work here and show it off to our students, faculty and the community at large,” said Gines, curator for the exhbit along with Alex Reeves, TSD student curator and president of MSU student chapter of the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS).

A public reception will be held on Wed., Sept. 4 at 5 p.m. in the gallery located on the third floor of Giles Hall.
