Synopsis

Projects are complex and multi-faceted. Building code and other statutory and technical requirements are discussed and basic resolution of these issues is a part of the project requirements. Students incorporate understanding of contemporary discourse in interior, environmental and architectural design and related social theory. Students articulate and test their individual design philosophies in studio discussion.

Objectives

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

  1. achieve design solutions for interior design projects which integrate technical factors and issues, and human and social requirements within a well-resolved holistic aesthetic that transcends the constraints of the project;
  2. undertake basic research and analysis that informs the design approach and its outcomes;
  3. resolve increasingly complex interior architecture projects;
  4. understand a range of design communication media and demonstrate competency in several of them;
  5. have a firm grasp of methodical approaches to interior architecture projects;
  6. provide clear reasoning for their choice of methodology, media, design options and solutions;
  7. articulate an aesthetic for their design in terms of a social/historical context;
  8. observe and employ occupational health and safety principles and rules appropriate to studio practice.
