Course DescriptionAdvanced Interiors Creative problems in interior design intended to develop an analytical approach to interiors. Based upon individual projects and includes advanced presentation skills. Prerequisites: ID 121, 123, 132, 133, 138; ARCH 101, 111, 124, 127. Prerequisite/concurrent: ID 135.
Addendum to Course Description
This course is designed as a capstone experience to prepare the student to transition to the interior design field, and is taken at the end of the program prior to graduation. Students typically participate in a team project to complete design schematics for a real client project.
Intended Outcomes for the course
On completion of this course the student should be able to:
- Demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively with clients and classmates, both visually and verbally, utilizing diagrams, drawings, presentation materials, and client interviews and presentations.
- Demonstrate the ability to work in teams to develop successful design solutions, negotiate differences and reach consensus, and meet project goals.
- Develop design solutions that
- show competency in applying the elements and principles of design, color and pattern coordination, and appropriate use of materials and surfaces;
- create accurate architectural drawings including as-builts and remodel plans, elevations, axonometrics, and perspectives;
- apply concepts of effective lighting design; and
- apply business principles related to budget, and pricing of design services.
4. Develop design solutions that demonstrate understanding of space and furniture planning concepts, and universal design where applicable.
Course Activities and Design
This course will be presented by means of lecture, discussion, demonstrations, and student fieldwork. The student’s grade will be determined by demonstrated competency in project completion, teammate evaluations, and participation in all class activities.
Outcome Assessment Strategies
- Complete a design project that demonstrates the ability to create:
- a full set of design schematics in response to the needs of a real client including architecturally accurate drawings, and professional presentation boards of materials and surfaces; and
- a notebook summary of all materials to be presented to the client and faculty.
2. Demonstrate communication skills by conducting a client interview, creating a design solution in response to client needs, and presenting the design solution for feedback from the client during midterm and end-of-term design reviews.
3. Demonstrate teamwork skills by participating on a design team, and being evaluated by classmates and faculty on ability to work effectively in groups.
4. Demonstrate the ability to utilize effective time management and organizational strategies to bring project to completion and meet goals.
