Students of ACE Mentor Program Team One have been awarded an Honorable Mention/Second Runner-Up in the 2011 CIRT/ACE National Design Competition. The team’s design project focused on the adaptive reuse of the Singer Pavilion, on the former Michael Reese Hospital Campus, into a school for the performing arts.
This is a great achievement for the ACE Chicago Chapter as it marks the first time a member of the Chicago affiliate has placed in the national competition. Most importantly it is a tremendous recognition of the accomplishments of the students this year. The prize comes with a cash award that will help support the programs and scholarships offered by the ACE Mentor Chicago Chapter.
The Team One students, all from Chicago area high schools, were led by volunteers from DeStefano Partners, The George Sollitt Construction Company, Thornton Tomasetti, and The Rise Group.

Attention Students: Please join ACE on our annual campus visit at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign, coming up Saturday March 12. The trip is free to all ACE students and includes travel by coach bus, breakfast, lunch and a fantastic and informative tour for all students planning to attend college.
We will be hosted upon arrival by faculty at the College of Fine and Applied Arts, who will provide a presentation on programs in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning. Tours of the design studios and a pizza lunch will follow, before we head across campus to the Engineering Open House 2011. Here students are able to participate in activities related to Civil and Structural engineering in a very informal setting. Former ACE students will meet with us throughout the day and you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions about college life. We might also have time for stops to see dorm rooms, book stores, and possibly a stop to see last year’s student Solar House competition.
Please ask your mentors for a permission slip with all the details or you may download it here: Schedule and Permission_ACE FieldTrip UIUC 2011.
