This introductory course focuses on the process of design as it applies to interior spaces. Students build an acute awareness of core principles -- scale, proportion, light, circulation and progression -- as a means to create visual harmony. Functional, utilitarian, economic and safety requirements of interior spaces in an architectural framework are examined and students develop a process book that is a document of their new appreciation for lighting, acoustics, textiles and materials choices. Through exercises and a final project, students learn to apply the basic principles of visual design to interiors, and to better understand how form and function can be translated into practical designs for livable interior spaces.

This course is held at the Westerly Education Center.
