In modern days, there is a perception that owning a lot will lead to a fulfilling life. We have the ability to adapt a minimal life style of owning and using less. This project is dedicated to promoting a better lifestyle of living with less space and less material possessions; focusing on the little aspects in life and having a simple lifestyle. The quality of life will both be efficient and comfortable with various amenities provided. This proven by the micro units in my complex.

Hotel LUZ landmark The design inspiration for Hotel LUZ is derived from the optical illusion of a mirage. A mirage is a natural phenomenon that happens when light is distorted due to the refraction of hot air. My design concept for this hotel is to apply the idea of the distortion of an image to the architecture. Hotel LUZ is located on the Boardwalk of Venice Beach, California. SoCAL is known for its sunny weather and its beaches along the coast. It is necessary to protect people from exposing to large amount of sunlight and therefore a shade structure is created to protect people from the sun. During the night, the fabric structure becomes a blank canvas for a musical light show. Along with vibrant music, motion pictures are projected on the fabric structure and making the hotel a new attraction in Venice Beach.

2014 IIDA Student Portfolio Competition | Bright IIDe

Thaddeus Lee is a senior level student at California State University Long Beach. He was awarded first place in

For the portfolio review I presented two of my projects from 2013. One was an individual project from junior

the 2014 Student Portfolio Review and received a $5000 scholarship for his work. He came to the US after completing high school in Macau to pursue an education in Interior Design. Thaddeus recently shared his experience in the competition and his future plans with BrightIIDeAs.

studio and the other was a group project from senior studio. Both submissions showcased what I have learned in my classes and the thinking process from initial concepts and ideation sketches to complete interior environments.

The portfolio competition was an incredibly fun experience for me to participate in. It was comprised of two parts; a preliminary application and an interview. I turned in a personal essay, a recommendation letter and finally a work sample. Twelve students from all the applicants were then selected to participate in an oral presentation at the SAA office in Irvine. I was nervous walking up to the office, but the welcoming faces and beautiful interior of SAA made me feel comfortable and excited to meet the judges. The oral presentation was a pleasant and fun moment for me – it was nice talking to the designers while I showed them my work and received their feedback. Interacting with professionals in the field was very inspiring, plus the judges were down to earth and easy to talk to which made the experience very memorable.

It is an honor to be awarded this IIDA scholarship and without the support from my professors and fellow classmates, I wouldn’t have succeeded in this competition. I really appreciate the people who have contributed Facebook social plugin to my success. As a graduating student, I am working on my thesis project this semester. It is a joy to do what I am passionate about and to create a project that belongs to me and accurately reflects my style. Upon graduation, I hope to secure a POSTS job in Los Angeles where I can further refine my design skills. I am excited to gain experience as a true RECENT professional once I enter the industry.

CONCEPT Peeps Land -a fantasy like and interactive space for kids that is unlike any other candy store. We were inspired by the organic form of the Peep that would be carried throughout the space. Each brand would be represented in different geographic “regions� of Peeps land. We wanted to create a whimsical and fun world to stimulate a different retail experience.

DEUS


Peeps Peeps is the most iconic and recognizable of all brands. They appeal to kids and art contests allow people to play with peeps in creative ways.

Mike & Ike Mike and Ike is the biggest brand that makes the most revenue. They are known for their mixture of fruit flavors and variety.

Hot Tamales Hot Tamales is the second gross revenue generator. The spicy, cinnamon flavor is shaped like a Mike and Ike but appeals to a more mature crowd.

Peanut Chews Peanut Chews are more regional to the East Coast. They consist of peanuts and molasses covered in chocolatey coating. The bars are small, similar in size to a “fun size� or Halloween-size bar.
