THINK/WORK Global Student Design Competition

The registration deadline for WING Global Student Design Competition and Awards 2013 is quickly approaching; entries must be submitted by July 31, 2013.

The 2013 edition of WING Global Student Design Competition and Awards is an international IFI competition sponsored by Teknion. THINK/WORK represents our need to imagine different solutions and develop innovative approaches and practices. New problems require alternative thinking about new methodologies, new solutions, and new goals to satisfy our future work environment.

This competition seeks projects that re-envision, reinvent and redesign future workspaces. The International Federation of Interior Architects and Designers (IFI) and WING call upon interior architects/designers to submit solutions that bring value, relevance, responsibility, culture, business, knowledge and identity as stated by the IFI Interiors Declaration.

Winners will walk away with an all-expenses-paid trip to the XXVI IFI General Assembly and International Design Alliance (IDA) Congress in Istanbul, Turkey, where they will also be honoured in front of members of the international design community. The winning team will also be invited to participate in stimulating programs and exciting social events.

Students are asked to submit effective and developed design solutions responsive to user requirements which are customized to support a particular organization’s business objectives. These requirements may be formulated by the entrant and must be clearly articulated and explained in the project description. Design solutions are required to be visually self-explanatory and fully expressed  in a dynamic three-minute video presentation with no more than one A3 (297mm × 420mm) process board, in which the thinking and the progression of the design is made evident through supplementary sketches, plans, elevations/sections and renderings.
