Last year's IIDA Student Design Charette at NeoCon took place on Tuesday, June 11th. Featuring 10 student teams, Student Members were faced with solving a design challenge within a limited time, using only hand drafting and rendering. The teams then presented their design to a jury of prominent designers, architects and industry leaders, who critiqued each solution before selecting the winners.
