The Interior Architecture and Design programme centres on the creative improvement of existing and new buildings and spaces. Students learn about how the objects and spaces that make up our everyday landscapes provide pleasure, give meaning to and can enhance the quality of people’s lives. Students develop an understanding of how people and activities interact with the material, environmental, sensory, emotional, functional and cultural qualities of a specific space and situation and how interior architects can design better places.
The first year is finalized with a semester-long design project and exploration, where all previous primary experiences expand and fuse together into a comprehensive understanding of space as an entity more complex than mere volumetric definition (Serious Play).
