Interior Design

The programme promotes the investigation and interpretation of interior space, inside and outside of the traditional architectural envelope, whilst considering human occupation, engagement and experience as the catalyst. You will be invited to discuss, experiment and question the idea of �interior�, its boundaries and opportunities, in the creation of new and unconventional interior identities. This may manifest in a variety of outcomes and will allow you to work within your chosen speciality such as building re-use, exhibition or shop design, branding, identities or environmental graphics, performance or set design, temporary installations or �event� design, furniture or artefact design. The specialist workshops provide you with opportunities to explore materiality, fabrication and realisation of your ideas, through technical rigour at a variety of scales. The interdisciplinary studio environment of the School of Art supports such experimentation and collaboration and embraces intellectual rigour and risk taking.
