Charette Design Problem
ThirtyÂ students from different yearsÂ at fiveÂ Oregon design schools were divided into six teams. Each team was assigned the same project; a neighborhood chapel located in a destination area ofÂ PortlandÂ withÂ easy access to the heart of the city, making it a desirable location for visiting travelers.
The program focused on designing for “The Modern Hostel”.Â Students were challenged to design forÂ a new era of travel;Â a boutique hotel experience with a less expensive price tag. Portland is one of Americaâ€™s most popular cities for young travelers, and there is a growing need to accommodate these young professionals with lodging accommodations that are; affordable, promote social interaction, integrated within the community, are well connected to their local environment, and offer a high-level of design.Â The winning designsÂ incorporated design elements that bringÂ together a group of people who are like-minded, have shared values, but also potentially a diverse group of people who may have different cultural values from one another. The designs successfully promoted a sense of security, strengthened the connection between the guest, the community and the local environment.Â The IIDA Student Member teams were judged on the function, design, creativity/originality, branding, aesthetics, oral and graphic presentation of their projects.Â
Jurors includedÂ Hope Telford, LEED AP BD+C of Richard Brown Architect,Â David Antilla of ZGF Architects, andÂ Jenny Guggenheim, IIDA of Guggenheim Architecture and Design Studio.Â The program was produced by the IIDA Oregon Chapter’s Co-VPs of Student Affairs,Â Mia Allen, IIDAÂ of Ankrom Moisan Portland, and Julie Jenson, IIDA.
Finally, thank you to the generous sponsors of the IIDA Oregon Local Student Design Charette!
