Interschool Design Competition
September 16

The Interschool Design Competition returns once again to the National Building Museum, September 16, with the awards ceremony on September 17.

For over two decades, the three metro area chapters of the AIA, six local schools of architecture, and the National Building Museum have collaborated to organize the annual ISDC. Students enrolled in architecture programs at Catholic University, Howard University, Morgan State University, Virginia Tech's Washington-Alexandria Architectural Center (WAAC), University of Maryland and the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) have greatly benefited from participating. Teams are composed of representatives from EACH school of architecture, resulting in very diverse and creative design solutions.

The awards ceremony takes place on September 17, 5:00-6:00p, at the NBM and is linked to the monthly “Spotlight on Design" lecture series, which features the ISDC awards jury chair, Patricia Bosch, FAIA,  Design Director at Perkins+Will in Miami, as the keynote speaker.
