Public can help UB architects win international awards for Project 2XmT and Qube

Last summer we featured the work of UB’s Christopher Romano (research assistant professor of architecture) and Nicholas Bruscia (clinical assistant professor of architecture) as they created Project 2XmT at the entranceway of Silo City (see here).


At the same time, Assistant Professor of Architecture (UB) Jin Young Song – Dioinno Architecture PLLC – has unleashed an incredibly cool minimalist and functional work of art that functions as a rolling side table and seconds as a complete dining set – it’s called Qube… and I want one!

Qube - Before and after
Qube – Before and after

According to University at Buffalo, “Last year’s contest drew more than 1,500 entries from more than 100 countries, and one winner was Elevator B, a tower that UB architecture and planning students built to house a colony of bees in Silo City. That structure took home the Architizer A+ Jury Award in the Student Design/Build Project category.”

Both of these new works are up for competitive awards, and people are being asked to vote for their favorites.

  • The public can vote for Qube in the Architizer A+ Products +Living category.
