Mary Carroll, a third-year architecture student at the University of Memphis, has won a design competition sponsored by the Memphis chapter of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA), a professional organization with members in 54 countries. Her entry won in the sustainable design projects category.
Carroll submitted the design she created for a house that she and her husband, William, are constructing for themselves in Fayette County, Tennessee. The design employs her extensive research in such areas as a gray water system, green roofs, and composting systems.
Carroll has also been a major contributor over the past year in the special sustainable design studios taught by architecture professor Jim Lutz. Architecture and interior design students in these classes have been working with a private client to design and construct a sustainable demonstration house in the Uptown neighborhood of Memphis.
