ASID Names Winners of Student Design Competition

05 March, 2013

-By Holly O'Dell


ASID has announced winners of the 10th annual ASID Student Design Competition. With a theme of “Repurpose for Today,” the HGTV-sponsored competition challenged design students to use an existing structure to create an environment that takes on a social issue.

“There is no better way to demonstrate design’s real-world impact than to highlight our design students’ solutions to some of our world’s most important social issues,” says ASID executive vice president and CEO Randy Fiser.  “The caliber of the work submitted gives us great hope for the future of an industry which thrives on improving the human experience.”

Judges named Molly Sherman the competition’s winner for her submission, “Wheels of Empowerment: Mobile Learning Environment for Migrant Farmworkers.” The Pratt Institute student’s entry focuses on a redesign of the seating on the common farm bus used by migrant workers. Simple modifications create an adaptable environment that can serve as a classroom for children, shaded seating for meals, and a meeting space for community organizers.

Four entries also were selected as honorable mentions. The winning submissions will be on display during Dwell on Design, June 21 -23, as well as honored at the ASID Celebration Design Awards Ceremony on June 21. View winning projects at www.asid.org/repurposefortoday.
