Course Description

Learn the fundamentals of interior design in this design studio. Students work with a professional designer on a complete interior design project, from initial concept to final presentation. They develop skills in freehand sketching, manual drafting, collage, and model building, while representing and testing spatial and material ideas. Students consider clients’ needs and aesthetic preferences as they design a functional interior and choose appropriate finishes. Coursework focuses on spatial design applications and concepts rather than interior decorating.

Course Notes: For the online sections of this course, all field trips and guest speaker presentations occur as virtual events and experiences.

Course Length - Online 11 weeks
