India Case Study students Nicolas Nemni, Dakota Semler, Michael Joffe & Benjamin Heldman at the State Department with the model of the US Moscow Embassy Master plan winner of the 2012 FIABCI-USA Prix Award for Public Buildings.
The FIABCI Scholarship Foundation recently awarded grants for the Spring term. One grant was used to award prizes to two Case Studies from The George Washington University “Real Estate Development Cases” course co-taught by Professor Dr. Tom Geurts and Anthony Balestrieri. Jason Dallara, FIABCI-USA member and Director of the Office of Master Planning & Evaluations at the State Dept judged the case studies.
The 1st place case was in Berlin (Germany) dealing with the intricacies of redevelopment in a congested and politically sensitive area. The 2nd place case was in Mumbai (India) where the development of a completely new shopping mall was analyzed. The students visited the cities and saw the developments first-hand and interacted with local specialists to better understand the issues and provide project-specific recommendations.
