The annual Design Charette is an amazing opportunity for the best and brightest students to showcase their abilities in a one-day design challenge. This year will be held virtually, with teams being comprised of students from different schools and years, coming together to work toward one solution. Each team will present their solution to a jury of esteemed designers, architects, and industry leaders. Winners will advance to the IIDA Western Region Student Design Charette virtual event in April.

This event is open to all students, including non-members. If non-IIDA members are on the winning team and advance to the Regional Charette in April, they will be required to become a student member. This virtual event is an all day event that will require strong internet to collaborate on zoom.
