The 2017 IIDA NC Student Design Charette took place at the host offices of HOK in San Francisco on Saturday 2/18/17. Over 25 students, from Bay Area design schools including:  CCA, SJSU, UCBX,  AAU, registered for the event.  Four teams were assembled on criteria to mix education experience and school attended.  This provided students a learning experience to come together and solve a design problem in an all-day Design Charette.

The solutions were presented to a prestigious jury:

Jana Gunsul, IIDA – Principal + Design Director of DES
Verda Alexander, IIDA – Founder, Studio O+A
Brian Graham, IIDA – Founder Graham Design.



Congratulations to the winning team:
