2021 PAVE STUDENT DESIGN COMPETITION
The PAVE Student Design Competition promotes “real world” design experience for college-level students interested in pursuing careers in the retail design industry. Students involved in retail planning, visual merchandising, interior design/architecture, branding, and similar programs are encouraged to participate in designing a small-scale intervention/idea that can be incorporated in any community-oriented situation (sidewalk, street, plaza, open public space, etc.) which might address an issue or to enhance what may be existing.
Students will explore and address the aspect of retail, scalability, materiality, technology, accessibility, and sustainability.
This annual international competition is open exclusively to undergraduate and graduate college students involved in retail planning, interior design/architecture, visual merchandising, branding, and similar programs. If you are unsure if your area of study qualifies, please reach out to PAVE at email@example.com.
Prizes include grants to students and the winners may even see their designs brought to life.
THE TOP 5 CONCEPTS
WILL BE AWARDED
“Receiving this award has been a truly amazing experience and has allowed me to connect with many individuals in the design profession and has presented many opportunities. Being able to travel to New York to receive the award was also such a great experience and will be one of the most significant moments of my life. The people of PAVE and Bank of America who organized and sponsored the competition are truly the most kind hearted people and I will be forever grateful for all the effort and hard work that they put into the competition and event. “
