Design Rewards

The International Interior Design Association sponsored the first IIDA RED (Recognizing Exemplary Design) Awards on Thursday, April 18, 2013 at a reception in the Spertus Institute Auditorium. Harrington College of Design undergraduate and graduate students were awarded 5 of the 7 awards, including the coveted Michelle Roberts award which carries with it a cash prize.

There were many more student submissions than in previous years and the jurors complemented the student submissions so highly that, instead of only one award as has been given in previous years, they determined that the quality of the student work was so excellent that several awards were warranted. Several more Harrington College of Design students and alumni were among the finalists and were also recognized for their design achievements, several winning in the professional categories.

The student submissions are currently on display at the Harrington campus in the third floor galleries and all are invited to view these award-winning projects.
