This course focuses on the design of interior spaces within existing buildings, and on design that links human activities and events to specific places and spaces.

Using drawing, model-making, film and mixed media, you will explore the re-imagining of space for new or different purposes while developing a critical understanding of the experience of space at personal and group levels.

Project work is supported by the development of design, communication and analytical skills. Community projects enable you to learn how to design for the needs of clients and to engage with society. Live industry projects introduce the professional, legal and public context while field trips and exchange programmes further enrich your studies.
