Workshop and award ceremony for the idea and design competition for the "Cybermedia Commons" (on the Suita campus)


On Friday, July 4, the second screening for student ideas and design to be used in the "Cybermedia Commons" (as it is tentatively named) was held in a workshop at the School of Engineering on the Suita campus with 17 students and 7 faculty and staff members in attendance. Although the number of entries was not so high, undergraduates through to graduate students from a variety of schools submitted excellent and unique proposals, 18 in all. Following the presentations of the proposals, while paying attention to the primary screening and votes by students, discussions were held in three categories: (1) Suggestions on uses for and/or events to be held in the space, (2) Suggestions on a nickname for the space and its logo, and (3) Suggestions on the interior design of the space.
Students and faculty and staff members discussed the role of the Cybermedia Commons, and which ideas and proposals should be used.

The following awards were then announced:
