Terence Tien '13 and three teammates from UC San Diego won the 2017 Walt Disney Imagineering Imaginations Design Competition. They designed Pacific Trove, a place at UC San Diego where slides twist and turn around Torrey Pine trees and suspension bridges tower over waterfalls, and includes Garibaldi Grotto and New Moon Beach where guests can find peace around aquariums or socialize near fire pits.
Their team was one of just six finalists selected from a pool of more than 300 that entered the competition, which challenges students to apply the same design principles used in creating Disney's theme parks to develop new outdoor spaces at their own college.

Terence's interest in design was evident while he was a Webb student. During the 2012 Unbounded Days symposium, he spent a day touring Dreamworks studio in Burbank learning about storyboarding, animation and design.
