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. This competition has two entry categories: undergraduate and graduate (in graduate studios). Projects are juried at the Regional Levels to determine the finalists, who are are juried at the National level. Winners and their respective faculty will be notified prior to 2019 IDEC Annual Conference and invited to attend awards ceremony.
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.
Submissions must meet all Student Design Competition requirements.
Projects will be judged according to having followed the requirements of the program along with creativity and sensitivity to the population occupying the space.
