Architecture Design and Technology Success Stories

Ariel Adhidevara and Saul Serrano - DVC architecture students

Two DVC architecture students competed in the 2017-2018 American Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) competition and won honorable mention. The competition recognizes sixteen exceptional projects, in two categories, that explore a variety of issues related to the use of steel in design and construction.

The Sheath TowerThe Sheath, by Ariel Adhidevara and Saul Serrano, is a tower with the main idea of layering. The residential tower contains 22 micro units, 19 medium size units and 5 luxury units. Between them there are sky lobbies for the residents. The tower also includes a base with a lobby, retail space and a public roof garden/atrium to enjoy the city on a rooftop.
