Parsons School of Design in New York provides the best networking opportunities. It’s one of eight top-ranking programs around the world that we have identified as shaping the next generation of interior visionaries. (See our instalments, on NYSID, the University of Manitoba, Domus Academy and SCAD). 

Last year, for a White House luncheon, students designed an installation made of discarded books, with 4,000 pages woven into a stage backdrop for Michelle Obama. This past spring, MFA candidates worked with the Pratt Institute on Housing the Homeless in NYC, to envision plausible design solutions to help the poor. The final projects, which were written up in the New Yorker, included a plan to turn disused shipping containers into housing communities; and a culinary school for people living in poverty. This fall, students are working with Monadnock Development on My Micro NY, a micro-housing concept that involves everything from crafting interiors with sustainable materials to designing the landscape.
