New edition of IIDA Student Design Competition has been recently announced for entries, organized by International Interior Design Association (IIDA) 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.

In the United States, there are currently over one million Americans living in assisted living facilities, and according to the US Census Bureau in less than two decades people age 65 and older are projected to outnumber children under the age of 18. As the population ages and life expectancy increases, assisted living facility construction will continue to accelerate rapidly over the next few years.
Assisted living facilities are constructed and designed for residents with varying levels of required personal and medical care: A resident may need assistance with managing their medication, getting dressed or bathed, have general health-related issues, or are seeking personal connection. Facilities such as this assist with daily life requirements, as well as provide a homeful setting through private suites and shared amenities. The overarching goal should be to promote independence and offer a sense of security for both the resident and family. The 2023 IIDA Student Design Competition invites you to design several critical areas within this new assisted living facility. The proposal should include spaces that support healing, restoration, and connection for an aging resident with varying levels of need. The design should create a seamless resident experience through interior architecture and thoughtful design.
The winning design projects will be selected by a jury of design professionals. Submissions are judged on excellence in aesthetics, design, creativity, and function as well as the suitability of the design solution to the project challenge and the successful integration of the elements of design. Winners will be announced Spring 2023.
Note! The competition will open Monday January 9, 2023, it is advised that you begin the application and project before that date.
