We are very proud to announce that UCLA Extension Arc_ID alumnus and MIA graduate, Rommel Ordoyo, is the 1st Place Winner of IIDA’s Student Awards Competition! This is the second time Rommel joined and won the annual IIDA SoCal Calibre Student Scholarship Competition.
Rommel’s winning entry for the Social Relevance category, the SEEDS Growing Community, is a highly sustainable center that encourages kids to grow their own produce and learn about the importance of healthy diet and nutrition. The center also has a restaurant/market component with a demo kitchen that uses the kid’s produce for its menu items and merchandise.
Rommel’s project was chosen for its purpose and value for a distressed Los Angeles area.

He is also committed to succeed in his real estate investing business where he aims to put his interior design education to its best use.
