NBWW receives the title of “Most Animated” at the 31st Annual Festival of the Trees for its tree “8 BIT CHRISTMAS”.
Festival of the Trees
Each year the design community supports Florida International University’s Interior Architecture Department, ranked #9 in the nation, at the Festival of the Trees. The “trees” are conceived and created by leading designers and design firms, and auctioned at the event. Each tree is underwritten by generous sponsors. The trees are first displayed and then auctioned at the gala opening, which was attended by more than 900 guests in 2016.
This holiday extravaganza has raised more than $350,000 in funds that directly benefit interior architecture students.
In keeping with the spirit of the Festival of the Trees, the point of departure for the design must be representative of the holiday spirit, but does not have to be a tree. This year, we ask that designers address the theme of “Timeless Design.” For the past thirty years South Florida has been home to many creative and exceptional designers, many have contributed their many talents to the continued success of this event. This year we continue to celebrate excellence in design and the creative spirits behind it!
The categories for judging are: Most Elegant, Most Colorful, Most Sustainable, Most Creative, Most Illuminating, Most Progressive, Most Whimsical, Most Thematic, Most Animated, and People’s Choice.
