Interior design team wins national competition with higher ed learning environment presentation
Friday, March 1, 2013
A Kansas State University interior design student team won the 2012/13 Interior Design Educators Council Student Design Competition with "A Refreshing Education."
Team members are Sydney Hall, Andrea Sisk and Haoran Hu.
Migette Kaup, associate professor, is the group’s adviser.
The win marks the third time in five years that a student team from the Department of Apparel, Textiles and Interior Design in the College of Human Ecology has been a first place national award winner.
This year, 37 programs across the US and Canada submitted 101 team projects to IDEC regional competitions.
The competition focused on envisioning the future of higher education learning environments. Students were asked to explore new paradigms of learning spaces and consider how interior design would enhance the experiences associated with technology and connectivity through both on-line and on-site settings. Teams had less than two weeks to investigate the critical design issues, complete their projects and prepare final presentations.
The award was presented at the annual IDEC conference last week in Indianapolis.
