    The IIDA Student Design Competition celebrates the talent and fresh design ideas of interior design students throughout the world who are currently enrolled in an interior design program or institution. The competition provides emerging professionals the opportunity to showcase their work and gain exposure in the interior design industry.

    This 2019 edition invites you to design several critical areas within a new Ambulatory Surgery Center being constructed. The design should promote and allow the physicians, along with the health system, to increase efficiency and create a seamless patient experience through architecture and thoughtful design. A spa-like feel and amenities seen in hospitality are instrumental in creating a sense of calmness and well-being. The new facility should be flexible and allow for growth due to the changing landscape of healthcare from volume-based care to value-based care.

    School projects already completed may be reinterpreted and/or edited to meet the requirements of this competition. If the school project was completed as a group, all members must agree in writing to enter the reinterpreted and/or edited project, and all members must be listed as participants on the entry form.

    Participants can enter individually or as a team (maximum 5 people).

    IIDA Student Members: 25 USD
    Non-members: 50 USD

    First, second, and third place winners will be selected by a jury of interior design and business professionals who will judge entries based on innovation and creativity, coherence and functionality, human impact, fulfillment of program requirements, and presentation of the information.
