A core learning objective for the Master of Interior Architecture Program is that every designer needs to demonstrate a firm grasp of how an underlying concept inspires and guides a design project. This new seminar/studio course explores the ideas and inspirations behind the creation of successful concepts. Strategies for creating and implementing critical design concepts will be explored through references ranging from cinema, animation, photography, graphic design, fine art, fashion, science and nature. Students will produce a design research project on a topic of their choice, and one to two small conceptual projects.
Prerequisites: Design Communication I, II, and III; Interior Architecture Studio II.
Current and potential Master’s students take note: This class is currently being offered as an elective, but will become a required class for those entering the Master’s program in Fall Quarter 2016. Once it is integrated in the Master’s curriculum, the course fee will increase to about four times its current fee–so enroll now and take advantage of the reduced price!
