Interior Design Studio 1

Course Code: INTD 1000

Academic Year: 2018-2019

Interior Design Studio is the core of the curriculum. It provides students with a learning experience and model environment in which industry practices and design theories are integrated into simulated projects. Collaboration, ideation, guided questioning and critical analysis using a recognized design process are emphasized at all levels of the studio courses. The working studio learning environment provides a foundation for this practical experience. Short lectures on key design criteria of prescribed project scenarios are provided, but the direction of the class is dependent on the critical path defined by individual and team approaches. This course is an investigation of discipline based problems in which students explore creative solutions to two and three-dimensional problems by analyzing the effects of sensory elements such as colour, light and manipulation of space, emphasizing the development of an interior volume. Emphasis is placed on the design process as well as on psychological factors such as colour, spatial quality and perception in development of the interior envelope.
