To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the Florida State University Department of Interior Architecture and Design recently exhibited the winning projects from the last decade of its annual Student Design Charrette.
Winning projects from previous charrettes were featured along with the 2022-23 academic year’s contest, highlighting the ability of students to “tackle complex design challenges” under the auspices of associate professors Steven Webber and Terry Londy.
“I am always blown away by the work our students do on the charrette,” Jim Dawkins, associate professor and chair of the department, said in a statement. “Over the past 10 years, this competition has become an important part of our program that students and faculty look forward to every year.”
The school shares that previous design briefs have been as fun as an imagining zombie apocalypse and as imaginative as a Mars colony. “This competition is great practice for our students to work as part of a team and tackle a complex issue,” Webber said. “In a professional setting, you don’t always get to choose who you work with. Being involved with the charrette, I learned a lot about how our emotional intelligence impacts the way we work with others and informs our work as designers.”
This year’s contest centered around a theme of “Game On” and “encouraged students to draw inspiration from a favorite childhood game and reimagine it as a life-sized experience.” The competition is judged anonymously by faculty.

The school exhibit will run through Sunday, Feb. 26, at FSU's WJB Gallery located in the William Johnston Building.
