In its first year of competition, CSHS engineering and construction teams beat more than 30 total teams, including more than 20 teams from Texas A&M and other colleges, to win the “Greenest Paw” and “Best in Show” awards.
The Brazos Bark and Build is a community competition for sustainable dog houses in honor of Adopt a Dog month. The event is designed to spread awareness about sustainable design, show off local design talent, and raise money for Brazos Animal Shelter and American Institute of Architects’ Brazos Emerging Professionals Committee.
Materials for the construction of the dog houses were donated or recycled. Dog houses were sold at a silent auction for the Brazos Animal Shelter.
