Two Interior Design Students Team Up in Intense One-Day Competition

Return to Our Main News Page interior-design-student-work

Two Interior Design students from The Art Institute of California — Hollywood competed in a one-day interior design competition with $23,000 in scholarships up for grabs. The Interior Committee of the Los Angeles AIA, a chapter of the American Institute of Architects, held the 2012 “1:2 Student Competition” at Cannon Design in Century City on March 24, 2012.

The one-day contest challenged students Angelica Centeno and Susie Makaryan to work together in an intense day of competition. The students came up with design solutions for a pre-selected program. They also interacted with judges from top interior design firms and mentors from within the professional design community.

“This competition allows the students to complete a project from concept to design development to model building within a one day timeframe, which is often required in a real world setting,” said Interior Design Academic Director, Sandra L. Park. “It is a wonderful opportunity for students to showcase their skills.”

Pictured here is the Hollywood team’s ideation board and model for a colorful “pop shop” – a food truck with popsicles and fresh fruit for kids and mixed-drink infused popsicles for the adults. Both sides of the truck would open through the flip top windows to service the two different kinds of customers.

Congratulations to Centeno (Bachelor of Science candidate, Interior Design, Winter 2012) and Makaryan (Bachelor of Science candidate, Interior Design, Summer 2012) for their hard work and innovative thinking!
