The Clemson students competing as a multi-disciplinary team in this year’s challenge include Caitlin Coppinger (MCRP), Sean Dorsy (MRED), Alex Pemberton (MRED), James Poulnot (MRED), and Kendra Waters (MSHP). According to ULI, the competition “challenges students to collaborate across disciplines and imagine a better built environment.”

Each team will have two weeks for design their comprehensive design, January 14-28, 2019. The 2019 site is Cincinnati, Ohio. Toronto hosted the 2018 competition.
