SUPERjury is a day-long review and celebration of the most provocative undergraduate and graduate projects in the school. With projects nominated for consideration by both students and faculty, the goal of SUPERjury is to foster self-reflection and stimulate a conversation about the state of architecture within the school and also how our work relates to contemporary issues in practice and the world. Students who are selected to participate in the review are recognized with honors and cash prizes. It’s a very significant event for the School of Architecture & Urban Planning.

Thank you to our host The American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS).
