This module will focus on introduction to basic of design in the context of Interior Architecture and Design. The programme has been devised as a hands-on educational short course with emphasis on the design process.
Students will be guided through series of design stages: initial inspiration, research and investigation, development of ideas, experimentation and risk-taking, iterative design solutions and final outcomes. The technical content of the course will challenge the students to develop drawing and making skills relevant to the discipline and the level of the course.
Learning will include research, concepts, drawing/sketching, collage, and model making though to a clear outcome. Students will produce a design portfolio at the end of the course. Time will be divided between studio-based learning/workshops; research, lectures, site investigation, self-managed study and cultural study visits to places of interest.
Students are encouraged to record as much as possible of their experience and design process; using photography, film, drawing, narration, and other appropriate media. Students are required to use a sketchbook as a visual diary for ideas; sketches, drawings and for working out ideas.
