Interior Architecture

The MA/MDes Interior Architecture works with spaces in the built environment, seeking opportunities for the development of exciting and thought provoking design outcomes and interventions. You have the opportunity to respond to this with your own ideas, concepts and theories through a self-directed Major Project, informed by design research and critical enquiry. This is the new title for MA/MDes Design (Interior Architecture).
