Designing the top deck of a cruise liner was the nautical brief given to entrants for the second Amtico student design competition, this year sponsored by McNeece.
The competition drew more than 250 entries which have been narrowed down to a shortlist of 20, 6 of which we show here. Judges, including John McNeece, Lorenzo Apicella and P&O managing director David Dingle, will choose a winner tomorrow (Friday).
The winning design solution ‘will show a good understanding of revenue-earning potential, its contribution to the facilities expected from a self-contained cruise ship operating at sea, and the environmental conditions in which the vessel operates’, says a competition spokeswoman.
‘One of the major aims of the competition is to encourage students to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to become a successful interior designer,’ says McNeece. ‘The standard of the entries submitted to this competition were, in my view, outstanding, and I am sure this award will reveal one of the future’s leading interior designers.’
