Synopsis

Projects are student-generated and complex, usually addressing specialised commercial contexts. Building construction, detailing, and specifications are researched and documentation of these aspects is required as part of the project requirements. Students undertake detailed design development stemming from their earlier research studies in specific contemporary discourses and practices pertaining to their project. Students develop a fully professional resolution of all technical, philosophical and aesthetic aspects of their individual projects.

Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this unit students will:

  1. Demonstrate understanding of a specialist application of interior architecture, with particular reference to relevant contemporary interior, environmental and architectural design and discourse; and the complexity of human needs that this interior architecture application addresses;
  2. Competently articulate the personal aesthetic, cultural and social position represented by their design solution, in its technical resolution and detail;
  3. Demonstrate application of this research-based understanding and capability in the development of a fully resolved specialist set of interior architecture designs that resolve to a high degree all project factors;
  4. Be able to communicate resolution of the project with high quality presentations and professional level technical documentation;
  5. Self-manage the scheduling of project work;
  6. Identify, understand and be capable applying the pertinent building technologies, specifications, and documentation techniques;
