2024 Student Video Competitions


Interior design is an inherently creative discipline, drawing upon human intelligence, ‎boundless creativity, and profound empathy to recognize and solve intricate design ‎problems. The ever-evolving landscape of technology has ushered in a transformative ‎era for numerous creative fields, including interior design. Particularly noteworthy is the ‎integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI), which has revolutionized the way designers ‎approach their work. ‎

Over the past two decades, AI-powered tools and algorithms have emerged as ‎indispensable aids, empowering designers with enhanced spatial planning, data analysis, ‎and simulation-based forecasting capabilities, enabling them to make informed ‎decisions. In the year 2022, a significant milestone was reached with the advent of ‎‎’Generative AI,’ now readily accessible to the public, enabling the generation of diverse ‎content modalities, from text and images to audio and animation. The prospects of ‎Generative AI are met with excitement and promise by many, while others express ‎concerns and skepticism about its implications when employed by the public.‎

In light of this transformative collaboration between human intelligence and AI, IDEC ‎announces the 2024 Video Competition, centering on the theme of “Artificial Intelligence ‎‎+ Interior Design.” We invite interior design students to delve into the profound impact of ‎AI on the future of interior design. As the next generation of design professionals, we ‎welcome your point of view, thought-provoking insights and compelling perspectives that ‎explore the synergistic relationship between human creativity and the boundless potential ‎of AI within our dynamic field. Concepts demonstrated through original audio and video ‎content are highly encouraged.‎
