Student Design Charrette
The 2018 IIDA Southern California Student Design Charette was held on Saturday, November 3th at Tangram Interiors in Newport Beach. Twenty-nine students who gathered from all around Southern California broke into six teams to design a concept for a creative co-working space. The project-setting being “The Block”, a redesigned “anti-mall” in the heart of the historical Financial District of DTLA (Downtown Los Angeles), the students had just 4.5 hours and limited resources to collaborate and create a space that included an arrival area, a lounge, a flexible conference room, and enclosed, modular offices spaces.

Announcing the 2019 Circle of Excellence!

Viveca-Bissonnette_400px

Viveca Bissonnette, FIIDA, CID, LEED AP

With more than 30 years of professional experience in the fields of both cultural anthropology and interior design, Viveca Bissonnette brings a unique approach and broad breadth of experience and knowledge to her professional pursuits. As co-founder and design principal at Hollander Design Group (HDG) headquartered in San Diego, Viveca leads the firm’s workplace strategy practice employing ethnography to inform design. Outside of HDG, Viveca is actively involved in the design and art community. She is currently a member of the New School of Architecture’s interior design program advisory council and has held board positions with the San Diego Architectural Foundation (SDAF) and the California Council for Interior Design Certification (CCIDC), among other organizations. Most notably she has been deeply involved with the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), beginning with her involvement as a student, leading to her recognition in 2004 as one of ten designers to watch in the country as part of IIDA’s 10-year anniversary celebrations. Viveca was elected to the International Board of Directors in 2008 advancing to the roll of President in 2010. Viveca continued to serve on the International Board of Directors for 7 years. In 2011, Viveca was inducted into IIDA’s College of Fellows—the highest and most prestigious honor IIDA bestows.
