This subject was previously known as BIA270 Interior Architecture Contexts.
This interdisciplinary subject explores and debates significant art and design movements across the twentieth and twenty-first centuries in the broader context of significant world events affecting social, political, technological, and economical developments, including indigenous perspectives.
