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.

Calibre Celebrates the Winners of the Student Design Charette

Every year at the Calibre Design Awards, IIDA celebrates not only the best teams in design, but some of the up and coming talented students soon joining the local workforce!

The IIDA Southern California Student Design Charette is an opportunity for IIDA student members enrolled in a Southern California Interior Design college program to participate in a charette challenge. All Southern California schools are invited to participate on a first-come, first-served basis, sending three students to the all-day event. This year’s event was held on November 14th, 2015 at LPA in Irvine. Teams gained collaboration and teamwork experience, while challenged to develop a design presentation based on a program assigned at the beginning of the day. A panel of judges from the local design community viewed and selected the top presentations to move onto a verbal presentation round.

The first place prize of $10,000 will be divided among the winning team of students which included, (from left to right) Ashley Achleithner (Art Institute of CA, San Diego), Ghadeer Alburaiki (Otis College of Art & Design), Jackiemae Apolinario (Mt. San Antonio College), Rina Velasco (Cal State University Northridge) and Christine Oiwake (Cal State University Long Beach). Congratulations to these IIDA Student winners!

The winning team of students will receive their check at the Calibre Design Awards Gala on May 13, 2016 and will be representing the IIDA Southern California Chapter at the next round, West Coast Design Student Charrette, which will be held in Seattle, Washington in April.

Tables are selling out as the event is fast approaching. Only 2 months away! Very limited General Seating left, secure your seats now! Click here to purchase tickets and become a sponsor.
