2015 IIDA Student Design Competition
Enter the 2015 IIDA Student Design Competition, which celebrates original design and rewards individuals and/or teams whose projects demonstrate innovative, functional design solutions that have a positive environmental and human impact, while allowing emerging professionals the opportunity to showcase their work and fresh design ideas to professionals working in the field.
The 2015 IIDA Student Design Competition focuses on The Future of the Urban University.
There has been a paradigm shift in higher education due to multiple factors: rising tuition costs, increase in entrepreneurial hubs with hands-on apprenticeships and training, and new research on teaching best practices. With this shift comes the opportunity to rethink how educational institutions are managed, planned, and designed.
This year, IIDA would like SDC participants to look at the future of the urban university design where multiple functions inhabit a single, multilevel space that combines learning, living, business, and community within the classic academic and current social spheres of higher education.
First, second, and third place winners will be selected by a jury of interior design and business professionals who will judge entries based on innovation and creativity, coherence and functionality, human impact, fulfillment of program requirements, and presentation of the information. Winners will be announced in the Spring 2016 issue of QUAD, the IIDA student newsletter, and featured in DesignMatters and on the IIDA website.
The competition is open for entries November 2, 2015–February 1, 2016.
