BCIT Interior Design students have won first and second place in the 2017 IDEC (Interior Design Educators Council) Student Design Competition for the second year in a row – last year winning first, second and even third place.
The project brief was titled ‘Design as an Agent of Social Change’, and focused on creating an educational facility that would serve as an orientation space for individuals embarking on a service-learning trip to the Amazon. All three of our student submissions made it to the finals, held in Chicago this year. There were about 109 entries from 40 different programs across North America this year.
The 2nd and 3rd year Interior Design students were recently honored at the IDEC National Conference in Chicago. Congratulations to Catherine Yuen, Sarah d’Artois and William Chien for their first place win for their entry entitled COMUN, and David Boucher, Lydia Yang and Ashley Mortensen for their second place win for their entry entitled ECHO.
The impressive results indicate the great talent of BCIT Interior Design students with the support of amazing faculty and staff from the BCIT Interior Design Department.
