Calibre Celebrates the Winners of the Student Awards Programs!

This year’s IIDA Southern California Student Awards Program included a Portfolio Competition and a Student Design Charette.

Student Design Charette
Thirty students from Interior Design Programs throughout Southern California were selected to compete in this prestigious design challenge. The students were grouped into teams of five and challenged to design a flexible retail concept including a specialty market, bistro restaurant and cooking classroom. The project was located in the heart of historical Downtown Los Angeles in the Broadway Trade Building.  Teams had 4.5 hours to collaborate and come up with creative design solutions using only hand drawing and rendering, after which, they presented to a distinguished panel of judges comprised of local Interior Design and Construction industry professionals.

The winning team will be awarded $10,000 at the Calibre Design Awards. This team went on to represent IIDA SoCal and compete in the Western Region Student Design Charette held in Phoenix, AZ.
