Project Description

Located on the third floor of a high-rise office building, the San Diego campus of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) brings all of the needs of a school—public and classroom areas, a library, technology resources, and offices—into a 30,000-square-foot interior. Distinctive graphics and forms define different zones.

Jury: “What might otherwise be a repetitious or simple environment is differentiated by unique spatial moments and interesting use of materials.”

Client: “Since FIDM is an institution of design education, the vision of the college is to envelop students in a creative atmosphere as almost literally part of their studies. Inspiration is key to surroundings. The moment one is surrounded by Wilkinson’s high-concept interiors, students, visitors, faculty, and staff are inspired by the idea of design. He underscores the college’s education mission.” —Annie Johnson, vice president and CFO, FIDM
