[3rd] Year Studio Update
October 29, 2014 § Leave a comment
Stephanie and Maruja‘s [3rd] year studio has made great strides of progress on their Student Design Competition entries for Steelcase. The project is centered around a building renovation at the hypothetical NEXT University, and the competition is a sort of forum to explore new ideas about educational design that will set the precedent for future educational spaces. The deadline to complete this project is fast approaching, and the studio dynamic definitely reflects the competitive nature of this individual competition. Students are thinking critically and creativly to come up with the most effective design solutions in hopes of being selected to represent UNCG IARc in the next tier of the Steelcase competition. [3rd] year studio students are already committed to their concepts and have since moved on to incorporate those concepts into a schematic design of the building interior. Because they had to consider space allocation, room placement, way finding, square footage, and furniture specification & configuration, working on the schematic design has also given [3rd] year students a great deal of practical job experience.
