‘Cargotechture’ Homes at the Buffalo Home Show

The Interior Design Association of Western New York (IDA) sponsored a student competition called “Cargotecture,” challenging both interior design and architecture students to explore the potential of using cargo containers as residential space. Separate awards were presented for the interior design and the exterior design.

Kristine Perry ’15 won both the juried award as well as the popular vote for her ‘Less is More’ design. Kristine has won a $500.00 cash prize as well as award certificates. University at Buffalo Architecture student Matthew Dellahunt won for his exterior design. He also took the juried award as well as the popular award in the exterior category.

The IDA designers created a cargotecture-inspired home that is on display at the Buffalo Home Show, located on the upper level of the Convention Center, and the student projects are on display adjacent to this model home. The home show was open this weekend and will continue again this Friday through March 15.
