The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) has announced winners of the 2013 Student Sustainable Design Competition. The contest, open to students enrolled in a college interior design or related program, sought projects that demonstrated innovative green principles.
Jenny Chang, Student IIDA, and Azarel Marrufo, Student IIDA of Arizona State University won the first-place $1,500 cash prize for their project, the Edge. “The consistent design, from the exterior and urban planning through the interior space melds the project seamlessly as a whole, taking sustainability by addressing larger social implications and interior design’s effect on the broader social community rather than just the client and location itself,” Robert Moylan, IIDA, one of the competition judges, said in a statement.
The second-place $1,000 prize went to Michelle Meléndez of Seminole State College of Florida for her project of the College of Communication and Public Relations. Tegan Deering, Student IIDA, of the Academy of Art University earned the People’s Choice Award for her Shipping Container Vacation Home.
