Short description

The PAVE Student Design Competition, organised by Planning and Visual Education Partnership (PAVE), now in its 26th year, is open for entries for 2020.

The goal is to develop a space which exploits the design potential that SketchUp offers, and leads to an increased number of SketchUp adopters.

Students participating in this competition will demonstrate the will to innovate, redesign, and reinvent an actual retail design space.
