Mary Yoxen Named Winner in Interior Design Competition

Interior design student Mary Yoxen was named the winner in the large commercial project category at the 2012 International Interior Design Association / American Society of Interior Designers student competition.

Mary's project is a place for musicians to experiment, practice, perform and connect with musicians globally through technology. Spaces are arranged as floating objects within a traditional masonry shell and are connected with pathways and an open stair/elevator.

"This is the second straight year a Marylhurst interior design student has won what I consider the top prize -- the large commercial category -- and the competition is only two years old," said Nancy Hiss, director of the interior design program at Marylhurst University.

The other categories are furniture design, kitchen and bath, residential, emerging designer and small commercial.

All fourth-year interior design students will be present their thesis projects on Thursday, June 14, 2012 at St. Mary's Academy in downtown Portland.
