Just recently the Kimball Office hosted a Student Design Competition/Awards Scholarship for the School of Arts and Sciences. With the aid of a professor at Indiana University’s School of Architecture + Design program, the scholarship was maximized to ‘create impactful learning experience for all participating students.’ Over a course of 8 weeks, students were asked to ‘research and design a co-working space based on a certain geographical region that was assigned to them and compile a story behind their design.’ Additional requirements that were considered included lighting, flooring, technology, Kimball Office furniture, personas based on the types of people that would utilize the space, graphics, and sustainability choices.
Let’s take a moment to congratulate the four talented design students who will each receive a $500 scholarship for their winning project:
1st Place – Impromptu: Charlotte Jolly and Brittany Porter (left)
From start to finish, the spontaneous interaction concept was beautifully executed. The research on demographics, personas and spatial planning resulted in a tight presentation that was top notch.
2nd Place – Tallinn, Estonia: Ye Wang (top right)
The design development process from spatial planning to form evolution to renderings was very well thought out. We appreciated the amount of time spent on the 3D images that visually told your story.
3rd Place – Assemblage: Morgan Heald (bottom right)
The research on Rio de Janeiro was well done. The personas created to further the cause for Fight for Peace showed good overlapping within the Assemblage concept. There was also good use of materials for the Rio de Janeiro landscape.
