Two students from the University of Texas at Arlington School of Architecture’s Interior Design program have won awards in the Tri-kes Wallcovering Source One Design Competition, sponsored by Interior Design Magazine and the Wallcovering Source distribution alliance, D.L. Couch, Eykon and Tri-Kes.

Jesus Plata and Michael Rene Contreras were awarded Student Merit Awards for the corporate category for their separate designs. The winning entries were selected based on design innovation, aesthetics, originality and sustainability for intended use.

The winners were announced at the NeoCon World’s Trade Fair in Chicago in June. Winning entries can be viewed at Source One.

Plata graduated in the Spring and Contreras will be graduating this semester. Both are students of Professor Elfriede Foster.
