Organised by the International Interior Design Association , the Student Design Competition 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 edition invites you to conceptualize the future of an urban university mixed-use building that integrates the multiple functions associated with a higher education campus while considering adaptive learning, integration of corporate and business resources, community involvement, and alternative education resources.
Encouraging collaboration, health and well-being, and sustainability should be evident in your final design. It should also address new strategies and approaches to higher education.
School projects already completed may be reinterpreted and/or edited to meet the requirements of this competition.
