AIA Northern Virginia
Interschool Student Design Competition
September 22

At the National Building Museum.

The Interschool Design Competition returns once again to the National Building Museum, September 22, with the awards ceremony on September 23.

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. This year, the jury will be led by Gerdo Aquino, FASLA.

The Sunday charrette is open to the public. On September 23, the winning teams will be announced at the National Building Museum during the Spotlight on Design.
