INDES 273 Interior Design Studio III • 5 Cr.
Introduces fundamental concepts and methods for planning, organizing, and arranging spaces in the interior environment. Students examine space in terms of human needs, activities, and priorities and apply design processes to make the best functional and aesthetic use of space. Prerequisite: INDES 169 and INDES 172 with a C- or better.
After completing this class, students should be able to:
- Understand the role and purpose of space programming, concept development, and schematic iterations in the design process.
- Present visual evidence and written statements to communicate design intent and validate solutions relative to the project objectives.
- Define and organize space and form by successfully employing the elements and principles of design.
- Apply space programming skills in the interior design process, including problem identification, client needs analysis, and relevant project context research, and presenting findings in written, oral, and visual communication.
- Develop design solutions through a variety of media, including sketches, models, collage, diagrams, space plans and other schematic studies that employ architectural and graphic communication standards.
- Design spaces that acknowledge the relationship between human behavior and the built environment; the diversity of human needs; and the importance of accessibility, human factors research, and universal design strategies.
