A Cal Poly Pomona architecture student has been awarded a top prize at the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s second annual ECO Innovators Showcase competition for designing an eco-friendly public healthcare center.
Samantha Schieldge tied for top individual honors for the design she came up with for the Great Park Community Health Center, which would be located adjacent to Irvine’s Great Park. The facility would be solar powered and would feature water recycling, natural ventilation and drought-tolerant landscaping.
The showcase competition is just one part of the Metropolitan Water District’s larger Spring Green Expo, now in its seventh year. It included projects from 20 colleges and universities in Southern California.
