The 4th Annual International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Student Design Charette at NeoCon was held on Tuesday, June 16, 2015. Featuring 12 teams, IIDA student members were faced with solving a design challenge within six hours, using only hand drafting and rendering.
The teams then presented their design to a panel of respected judges from the interior design industry. A Winners Reception took place the following evening.
The WSU Interior Design program was represented by students Uris Giron and Candie Wilcken. Giron’s team was awarded the “People’s Choice Award,” voted on by nearly 50,000 architecture and design professionals attending NeoCon.
NeoCon, held annually at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, is the commercial interiors industry’s most important annual event — bringing together the right people, the best products, and the most innovative ideas.
