ARC 408 Interior Design Studio (6) MPC

A culminating studio in which the exploration of professional issues specific to Interior Design are related to questions posed by liberal learning. Students are required to examine how spatial, technical, and aesthetic properties of interior design are influenced by both local and global economic, social, political, and cultural issues. This studio course includes a seminar-reading component. The essays are selected to challenge students in thinking critically about their pre conceptions related to design. In addition, students will bring to the studio the impact of an independent study requirement that focused on their individual interests related indirectly to interior design. Students select their independent study with the understanding that its content will extend into and become an integral part of the studio in the capstone experience.

Prerequisite: senior standing. Intended principally for interior design majors who have completed seven semesters of design studio. Other design majors will be included by permission of instructor.
