The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) has opened the 10th Annual Student Design Competition. This year’s theme, Repurpose for Today, challenges student designers to create an environment that helps address a current social crisis.
The winning project will be honored with a $2,000 cash prize and national recognition, exposing the winning student’s work to more than 30,000 ASID designers. Students must include a synopsis of the social issue of their choice and an environment where the problem will be addressed; a building, trailer, bus, train, or other environment will all suffice. Projects must consider ergonomics, anthropometrics, sustainability, demographics, cost, and applicable codes to develop an informed design.
Taking the rapidly advancing technological landscape into account, students must also include a video or slide show component in their submission, a visual inspiration file, that represents the selected social issue in visual imagery, words, and/or music. A design board and supporting visual imagery must also be included.
The deadline to enter is November 15. Public voting will commence shortly after the competition closes. A jury will also be announced.
