There is no way of isolating living experience from spatial experience.
The interior offers a lucid indication of the constant and changing nature of patterns of social activity. It is a sign of the values and aspirations of the inhabitant and a record of the character and culture of its occupants. Therefore the design of the interior always places an emphasis upon the association and connections between both the lived experience of the space and its new inhabitation.
This competition is tasking the new generation of students, studying the design of interior space, to create a project that demonstrates innovative forms of meaningful interior inhabitation. Projects might involve the development and realisation of innovative spaces in which to live, work, relax, consume, perform, exhibit, learn, consume, become well, acculturate and many other forms of human inhabitation. The wide range of possible project 'types' reflects the student choices and preoccu-pations in the field that they have studied. The wide range of projects, sites and ideas reflect the diversity and dynamism of the discipline of interiors, a field of study that reflects the multiplicity of ways in which humans can meaningfully inhabit space.
The vehicle for the YIDA 2013 competition is student's final year degree projects. All undergraduate degree courses in interiors have the third year 'final project' as a major component of their degree award and an integral part of their curriculum. The content is usually chosen by a student and placed in a site or a building that they may have chosen or have been chosen for them. The YIDA 2013 competition is an award for that degree project and one that is drawn from the final year Interior Design/ Architecture course completing before Spring/Summer 2013. The Janine Stone Young Interior Designer Award 2013 will reflect the diversity and be an award for the best interior designer or architect in the UK across the UK's leading universities.
The competition is open to all UK universities offering the appropriate final year degree courses as defined by the 2013 Brief.
On Tuesday 30th April 2013 IE group and non IE university course leaders & tutors will be asked to submit their very best degree project submissions, per interior course in the UK to Janine Stone.
The deadline for receipt of all design submissions to Janine Stone's London office is the same for all students, whether from an IE course or non IE course university and independently submitted work from students Tuesday 30th April 2013 there are no exceptions.
