Imagining student life at IE: beyond vertical campus is the latest call for ideas launched by IE- School of Architecture & Design to invite participants in creatively thinking about new ideas related to the students’ life, drawing on the opportunities presented by the vertical campus.

This ideas competition is open to anyone who believes that one of IE’s innovative bachelor or master programs can help unlock one’s full potential. The general theme “Imagining Student Life at IE: Beyond the Vertical Campus” is the same for all applicants, but IE will consider applicants to each program in separate pools when judging the submissions.

The brief is intentionally broad. IE doesn’t want to constrain, contain, or impede an innovative idea with restrictive guidelines. Your submission can deal with anything from how we might reimagine the traditional student residence to tackling the issue of sustainability in all aspects of student life. Alternatively, you may focus on increasing the connection with the city, promoting student well-being or improving on-and off-campus mobility.

Above all, IE wants to see your creativity in action in a way that demonstrates your talent and way of thinking. IE wants you to consider how this hub of limitless potential can provide the most value to our students. Therefore, the competition is open to six IE’S programs : two Bachelor’s (BAS and BID) and four Master’s (MSID, MBARCH, GMRED and MRED. The documents to be submitted vary depending on which program you choose; download the competition’s brief to learn more about the papers required.
