More Courses in Interior Design, B.F.A.

A goal of this course is to further develop the designer’s tool set and skills with particular attention to inclusive design as an approach to the problem solving. Students will further develop their skills as designers in exploring space, modulation, and perception as they undertake more complex problem solving through a range of project types, as well as working in cross-discipline teams: larger scale interiors in commercial, public, and institutional buildings. Various theories exploring the relationship between human behavior and the built environment, theories of sustainability and general theories of design will be presented. Universal Design and the appropriate application of ergonomic and human factors will be also developed as a part of the design work. Students will have the opportunity to work in teams to explore and apply principles of two and three dimensional strategies, lighting, color and materials, while a correct analysis and application of relevant codes, zoning, fire and life safety will be discussed.
