New edition of IIDA Student Design Competition has been recently announced for entries, organised 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. The competition provides emerging professionals the opportunity to showcase their work and gain exposure in the interior design industry.
2020 DESIGN PROBLEMA - A physician’s group that specializes in gastroenterology will be constructing a 12,540-square-foot digestive health clinic within a new medical office building (MOB) in Scottsdale, Arizona. This clinic will specialize in preventing, diagnosing, and treating digestive and liver disorders such as celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, hepatitis, and cirrhosis. The clinic goal is to advance the delivery of care for patients suffering from all digestive health conditions. Guidelines:
The 2020 IIDA Student Design Competition invites you to design the digestive health clinic. The space plan should include all program requirements such as waiting areas, exam rooms, offices, and an infusion therapy suite. The design should facilitate increased efficiency for physicians and create a seamless patient experience through thoughtful use of architecture, interior design and space planning strategies. A spa-like feel and amenities seen in hospitality are instrumental in creating a sense of calmness and well-being. The new facility should be flexible and allow for growth due to the changing landscape of healthcare from volume-based care to value-based care.
