The Design Studio is the main focus of the Interior Design program and provides you with a range of methods for exploring Interior Design practice. At the beginning of each semester a suite of Design Studios are presented. Program staff or external practitioners lead these. At this time you are asked to select one of the Design Studios on offer through a ballot system. This enables you to make key decisions about the directions and design interests you wish to pursue.
The Design Studio requires you to draw from parallel streams and courses including History and Theory, Communications and Technology to apply relevant techniques, skills, methods and knowledge.
Each Design Studio is based on a project that explores a range of ideas, sites, questions, contexts, and explorations to the practice of Interior Design. Each studio uses techniques that enable you to engage in the specific aspects of a studio direction and provide you with a range of technical skills that are particular to the context of the Design Studio.
