Recent Byron Nelson High School alumnus Buddy Davis finished in the top 10 nationally in a student architectural design competition, beating dozens of top students across the U.S. for the honor.

Buddy earned 10th place honors in the National Technology Student Association Conference’s CAD architecture competition in the high school division, becoming the only Texas student to place in the event. He and other competitors took part in 7 hours of design and interviews, designing the majority of a house based on provided needs.

Students were given a house outline with only a kitchen identified and had to design the remainder of the home. They then had to create a set of construction plans as well as a virtual walkthrough of the house. The competition required extensive knowledge of both architecture and architectural computer-aided design – or CAD – software.

Jeff Taylor, architecture and engineering teacher at Byron Nelson, serves as the school TSA sponsor.

Buddy will attend Texas Tech University beginning this fall, where he plans to study architecture.
