The Student Design House is a project of MADE: In America to showcase emerging American designers and the American-made products of the 2012 award- winning manufacturers. The competition was open to teams of students currently enrolled in accredited post-secondary design programs in colleges and universities in the mid-Atlantic region. The Woodlawn teams are: University of North Carolina at Greensboro; George Washington University; and the Corcoran College of Art + Design. All teams, except for the Corcoran, have re-imagined Woodlawn for 21st century living. The Corcoran team virtually re-imagined Frank Lloyd Wright’s Pope-Leighey, displaying their work in one of Woodlawn’s rooms. To see a sneak peek at their fabulous designs, check out our Facebook Photo Album!
The competition was structured to provide students an opportunity to tackle a real design project in a time frame and under circumstances they will face as professional designers. The rooms were judged by a team of noted designers including Alexa Hampton and Barbara Hawthorn.
