Interior Design (ID)
Introduction to basic techniques of architectural drafting with an emphasis on industry standards, architectural symbols, lettering, and line weights. Graphics will focus on interior floor plans, elevations, sections, details, and axonometric drawings.
The elements and principles of design; their theories and applications related to the built environment, including programming, spatial relationships, materials and components, design styles, sustainability, and universal design; and an overview of the profession.
Students in this course will successfully complete the Sophomore Portfolio Review which includes the following: Conceptual Problem - Creative Thinking and Writing, Conceptual Problem - Application/Elements/Principles and Presentation to External Reviewers. Students will not be allowed to register for upper-level studios unless they have completed this requirement.
Perspective drawing as it relates to interior design with an emphasis on one and two-point perspective techniques (both technical and free-hand). Advanced section and axonometric drawings.
Introduction to Interior Design space planning techniques, based on the principles and elements of design. The course will use modeling (both digital and physical) to increase the understanding of spatial relationships with an emphasis on ergonomics, anthropometrics and proxemics.
Introduction to digital presentation techniques and graphic software programs that aid with the development of digital presentation boards. Composition, color and print quality will be emphasized.
General analysis, selection, estimation, and application of materials and finishes in the design of components of the built environment including testing standards, specifications, color theory, textile applications, and cultural and global influences.
Emphasis on a broad range of two-dimensional computer-aided drafting and design techniques for interiors as specified by industry standards, including computer graphics and various aspects of project management.
Study of structures, building materials, construction techniques, mechanical and electrical systems, and their impact on the design of the built environment.
Study of building and interior codes used in the design of the built environment, which includes model codes, standards, regulations, Life Safety, ADA, sustainability, electrical, and plumbing.
Survey of influential architectural movements, interiors, furnishings, and the decorative arts related to major cultures from Antiquity through the early 19th century, with special emphasis on periods of design influenced by Classicism.
Survey of architectural styles, movements, influences, interiors, furnishings, and the decorative arts from the mid-19th century to the present in Europe and America. Strong emphasis on 20th-century masters.
Study and preparation for the internship experience. Application of professional skills related to various forms of written communication, interview techniques, and ethics. Portfolio design and development.
Technical and psychological aspects of the illumination of interior environments that support human performance, environmental issues, aesthetic appeal, and the health, safety, and welfare of the user.
Emphasis on three-dimensional computer-aided drawing techniques for interior design and presentation, using BIM (Building Information Modeling) software.
Successful completion of ID 2090. ID 2375 and 2395 recommended. Application of design components for residential environments. Development of the design process with emphasis on research and programming, human behavior, lifestyle concerns, environmental issues, special needs populations; and consideration of cultural, regional, and geographic influences. Includes material/finish specifications, budget application and team-based design solutions.
Application of design components for small-scale commercial projects, with emphasis on research, programming, conceptual development, creative problem solving, building codes, life safety, environmental issues, and universal design. Includes estimation, specification, and applications of materials/finishes, lighting applications, and team-based design solutions.
Introduction to methods and techniques of interior design research. Students develop a research framework which they will apply to the design of their capstone project the following semester. Various types of qualitative, quantitative, and historical methods of design research will be discussed.
Business practices and procedures, ethics, project coordination, licensure, and legal aspects related to the interior design profession.
Sustainable Design course provides an overview of sustainable practice, accreditation and certification standards, and other relevant programs like The Well Building Standard and GreenGuard. This course will prepare the student to take the USGBC Green Associate exam prior the end of the semester.
ID 3322 recommended. Supervised internship in an approved design-related work environment. Minimum of 240 hours.
Application of design components for large-scale commercial projects including open office systems, with increased emphasis on thorough research and programming, conceptual development, creative problem-solving, application of building codes, environmental issues, and universal design. Includes estimation, specification, and application of material/finishes, lighting applications, and team-based design solutions.
A comprehensive capstone studio that will provide an advanced integrative application of the design process resulting in complex design solutions and complete project documentation. Final portfolio presentation required.
