    I Like Design Competition - Outside Competition

    Deadline: February 26, 2016

    You all know by now that our I Like Design competition gives students the chance to utilize the greatest (and FREE!) marketing tool at their disposal: social media. In this digital age, the value of self-promotion on these platforms is critical and ILD shows them exactly how to use it to their advantage.

    But what you didn’t know yet is that this year we’re going bi-coastal #eastwestdesignfeud! Students will get a shot at not one, but two opportunities to jump start their careers. The two lucky winners will be placed for a summer internship at either:

  • Arcsine
  • Arcsine is a comprehensive architecture and interior design firm based in Oakland, California serving the hospitality, workplace, retail and residential markets nationwide. Since its establishment in 2003, co-founding principals Daniel Scovill and Adam Winig have balanced a steadfast commitment to design quality, sustainability, and collaboration. This year, the San Francisco Bay Area NEWH chapter selected Arcsine as a top interior design firm for 2015.

  • //3877
  • Multidisciplinary firm //3877 is committed to providing innovative and creative concepts that enhance and enrich the lives of clients, partners, and communities. The Washington, D.C.-based studio, led by David Shove-Brown, AIA, NCARB, and David Tracz, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, focuses on developing solutions that are thoughtful and functional for the hospitality, residential, commercial, and healthcare/wellness markets. The 10+-person studio specializes in architecture and interior design, while also being fully versed in branding and graphic design.

  • The Challenge
  • Create the comprehensive next college/university dining hall.
  • First, you must study the evolution of collegiate dining from the original lunch-line layout to the university restaurant and food court. Diagram, take notes, and completely understand what has been done before, noting the good, the bad, and the ugly. Second, apply your knowledge of the past to create a new design. Selecting and using tone of the site plans provided (right hand column) and building model of a collegiate building, design a dining hall with the following spaces:

  • REQUIRED:
    • Seating
    • Food Service
    • Food Prep **note: you need not design a complete kitchen; showing the location for preparation is sufficient**
  • OPTIONAL:
    • Bar
    • Various Seating Groups
    • Study Areas
    • Play Areas
    • Conference Areas

    As you design for the future dining hall, consider Individual Seating vs. Group Seating. Think about Quiet Work Space vs. Louder Meeting Areas. Contemplate community interaction. Is there a performance stage or meeting area? How does the interior space connect to the exterior? How does the main floor interact with the mezzanine? Can spaces transform from user to user and minute to minute?

    For more information, please visit the Interiors and Sources Competition website.

  • Your firm has had an exemplary record of claim* free projects for many, many years, until the past 18 months when several claims were filed against you. These claims are not based on technical errors, but rather on unmet client expectations. The client expected a different result and feels like the architect should pay for whatever it takes to meet the client’s expectation.

    What would you do to ensure that client expectations are met on each and every project? What changes would you make, what approaches would you implement as you manage your projects and the firm to eliminate the risk of unmet client expectations?

    *Generally a claim is a formal way of beginning to sue for damages. In this initial step both sides will work to resolve the conflict without going through the expense of a formal law suit.
