Fifth Annual Daltile Interior Design Scholarship Accepting Submissions
The 2016 contest challenges students to redesign an existing hotel lobby sing key biophilic design principles to address and enhance the guest experience.
Biophelia is the concept that people have an inherent desire to connect with nature and natural systems, highlighting the relationship between nature, human biology and the design of the built environment. The principles of biophilic design give designers the guidance to design spaces that positively impact occupants’ health, productivity, creativity and well-being.
The contest is open to undergraduate interior design students, and will award $27,500 in scholarships. The grand prize winner will receive $10,000 towards their education, and three runners-up will each receive $2,500. New this year, the school with the highest number of completed student submissions will be awarded a $10,000 grant.
Students can enter their submissions from now until Sept. 22, 2016. The winner will be announced on November 10, 2016 at the ASID Career Exchange at NeoCon East in Philadelphia. For more details, please visit www.daltiledesign.com
