The Pupil + Paper design competition came with basic criteria: The students could only use recycled paper and materials, primarily supplied from kpb architects. They weren’t allowed to alter the paper through coloring or painting, but could shape it any way they wanted, including use of water.

Over the course of two months leading up to the competition, the students were able to participate in three mentor sessions with staff from kpb. Chugiak’s Armstrong said the sessions were a huge help because of the expertise and constructive criticism students received. The bonus was mixing and mingling with the other students for inspiration.

“It was cool to see others’ thought processes and how they work, seeing how they shaped the paper,” Armstrong said.

And how the event even came to be is also fitting.
