ELIGIBILITY

This competition is designed to be applicable at all levels of design education, and it is our hope that it will serve as a good educational tool in both beginning and advanced studios. In a change from recent IDEC student competitions, this competition has two entry categories: undergraduate and graduate (in graduate studios). It is encouraged by the committee to consider using a vertical studio approach, where one lower level student works with an upperclassman to create the design solutions. It is appropriate for an institution or instructor to set a program type based on their understanding of their student body and individual contexts.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Submissions must meet all Student Design Competition requirements.

EVALUATION

Projects will be judged according to having followed the requirements of the program along with creativity and sensitivity to the population occupying the space.
