INTER-220

This studio class focuses on the understanding and use of color and mateials in interior environments. Students learn basic theory of light, fundamental design principles such as texture, hue, value, saturation, and how they dramatically affect elemental qualities of spatial configurations. Equally pivotal to this course are the visual and physical articulations of surfaces, placement of objects, light and space as a consequence of how they are utilized as design tools. Projects include the consideration and interrogation of existing spaces and creating innovative ones that experiment with these interrelated concepts such as the inherent manipulation of space through these aspects of design practices.
