Course Overview

Interior Architecture and Design practice spatial relationships within context of user needs, where users could be humans or animals. On this course, students will study InteriorArchitecture and Design skills, knowledge and techniques and develop capability to produce creative
spatial solutions that will address relevant user needs within different scenarios. The course will engage with fast moving technological change to produce graduates that are confident to operate professionally within future design contexts. The course is highly engaged with industry and community through industry specific guest lectures and industry live briefs and projects. Through COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning)
projects and field trips, lectures and activities which draw on global design themes, students will develop intercultural literacy and a wider global context of the subject and be able to bring such influences into their design work

Main Study Themes

Interior Design Exploration

Engage in universal design processes as practiced throughout the international design community and develop work using key illustrative and modelling submission methods.

3D Modelling

Explore 3D spatial attributes by using surface modelling CAD software, 2D drawings and physical models.

Professional Studies

Undertake autonomous activity in making, drawing, collecting, organizing and developing images and other key personal ‘triggers of interest’ in a sketchbook that acts as a log of your work. The sketchbook is intended to be a constant companion and provide a place to note, draw and explore all aspects of design activity taught on the course or initiated in other ways.

Design Inquiry

Critically appraise and focus your own practice and demonstrate your capability to undertake an investigative activity that illustrates the basis for research and key knowledge that underpins the work of design practitioners in their field.

Course Information

We cultivate a form of Vertical Studio (where teaching can happen across all levels and projects) where students experiment, exercise and practice: critical thinking, spatial intelligence, creativity, collaboration/cross-collaboration and technical competency through lectures, interlinked projects, workshops, tutorials and charrettes.

We deliver progressive scaffolded teaching. Our students explore, experiment and design with both analogue and digital technologies and generate outcomes in: 2D and 3D, CAD, video and VR.
