The 2013 Stickley Design Invitational
The 2013 Stickley Design Invitational will be held on
Saturday, April 27, 2013.
The 2013 Stickley Design Invitational is funded by Cara Corbo and Ted Lytwyn in memory of Nancy Strathearn.
The Stickley Design Invitational is a fun, full-day design challenge for high school students with a serious interest in architecture and/or interior design. This program, limited to just 12 carefully-selected students, offers prizes, the opportunity to test skills, build resumes, and interact with architects, interior designers, design professionals and other students sharing the same interests.
The Stickley Design Invitational is a partnership between the Robert Busch School of Design at Kean University and the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms, a National Historic Landmark and the only home Gustav Stickley designed and built for his own use. For Stickley, prominent designer, leader, and voice of the American Arts and Crafts movement, who established a design empire in the early 20th century, Craftsman Farms represented the culmination of his ideas and philosophy and was envisioned to be a place of practical education, where young people would learn by doing. We proudly continue that vision today. This program is funded by Cara Corbo and Ted Lytwyn in memory of Nancy Strathearn, the Robert Busch School of Design at Kean University, H|AI Architecture, and by Gustav Stickley's great-grandchildren, Louis G. Glesmann, III and Cynthia McGinn, who share the passion and vision of their great-grandfather toward creative design for everyday life.
The 2013 Invitational design challenge will require participants to propose the design of a new structure for the Craftsman Farms campus (full details will be issued the day of the Invitational). The challenge must be completed during the span of the program and each student's solution must include a 3-diminsional model (all materials provided). The 2011 and 2012 program statements are available here as a reference. A distinguished panel of judges will determine the best design solution and award prizes to the top two winners.
