MRED students Shelley Pelliccione, Claire Sanders, James Malm, Jason Hull, and Christian Grabeman were one of several multidisciplinary teams from around the Carolinas who were invited to submit proposals for redevelopment a vacant city block on the historic Georgetown, S.C. waterfront and a neighboring city-owned island. The goal of the competition was to surface innovative ideas and practical solutions in design and development that can positively impact the community and its built environment.
The Clemson MRED team project, Sea Change, was selected as one of two finalist teams and the team was asked to present their proposal in front of a jury panel at the ULI Carolinas meeting on Tuesday, February 13, 2018. Sea Change was chosen as the Urban Ideas Competition winner above Palimpsest.
Dr. Robert Benedict served as the academic advisor and Parks McLeod of McLeod Landscape Architects in Greenville, SC served as the team’s professional advisor.
