CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) - Students at the University of Virginia's Architecture School showed off their finished projects for the Vortex competition to redesign Route 29.

At the beginning of the week, 30 teams were asked to come up with a vision for how they think the Route 29 corridor will look like in 15 years.

On Sunday, the groups presented their completed posters and models at the Carver Recreation Center.

Each team focused on redesigning a different 1,500 foot section of the road.

“Our group had the section that was along the Rivanna River,” said Chad Miller, a first-year architecture graduate student. “We drew on a couple of site elements there related to energy production, including the dam there, the quarry and its major cultural fields.”

All projects were eligible to receive awards from faculty, students, and the public.

A ceremony was held at the end of the day to celebrate the students' hard work.
