Terence Tien '13 Wins Disney Competition

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.

  • The Week @ Webb - Together in January

    Scott Nichols
    The Week @ Webb is a periodic photojournal of events on and off Webb's campus. Did it feel like January lasted 31,000 days instead of just 31? I know that for me, it's important to spend as much time as I can with other people when life gets really busy. We all do better when we surround ourselves with friends and family and that's what I tried to capture in this latest gallery.
