Worth a Good Look: IIDA Interior Design Competition Winners

Innovative ideas and techniques are celebrated by the International Interior Design Association’s annual Interior Design Competition, which honors winning projects in the categories of corporate office; cultural, educational, or institutional; government or municipal; health care; hospitality; retail or showroom; and residential. There’s also an overall winner, drawn from all seven categories. In addition, the Will Ching Design Competition recognizes originality and excellence in commercial design from firms with five or fewer employees. All projects are judged for their suitability and originality, with special attention paid to how finishes and furnishings are integrated.

Judging this year’s submissions, a U.S. jury comprised Wilson Associates senior vice president James Carry, Laura Guido-Clark Design’s Laura Guido-Clark, D’Addario & Company architect Tom Stack, and 3M design manager Byron Trotter. A project that had already won an Interior Design Best of Year Award made their list, too: Fort McMurray International Airport , built in Alberta by the Office of McFarlane Biggar Architects + Design­ers . The firm will be honored once again, along with the other winners, on June 14 at the IIDA’s black-tie Cool gala, which kicks off Chicago’s NeoCon fair.
