Hyperspace Final Presentations
Projects from the Interior Design program's first-week collaborative experience, hyperspace, will be on display for public viewing.
The five-day workshop, which annually takes place the first week of the spring semester, challenges students in RIT's Interior Design program to work in teams to solve a design problem faced by a real-world client.
An exhibition of posters, along with quick-fire presentations of the concepts, is set for 4:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 14, in the gallery. The evening will conclude with the announcement of a team winner at 7:30 p.m.
This year's client is the Syracuse Hancock International Airport, with support and mentorship from engineering and architecture firm C&S Companies. Students were charged with developing design packages for a pre-security food and beverage area — complete with vending machines that provide fresh, healthy meals — for the airport.
The project aims to improve the experience of pre-security visitors, including friends and family picking up travelers, stranded travelers, transportation-service drivers and airport employees. Airport pre-security areas commonly lack food and beverage vendors due to low revenue generation, causing some airports to address the need through the installation of vending machines.
The winning design chosen by a jury will be constructed at the Syracuse airport.
