This subject was previously known as Interior Bites.
An introduction to the tools of the Interior Designer, demonstrating how interior space is conceived using the different elements that comprise an interior. 'Interior elements' such as colour, light, materials, sound, space and volume and furnishings are explored separately and then in combination. A series of interactive design activities will introduce students to discipline exemplars and experimental techniques that inform the student’s creation of a small-scale design proposal. There is a fieldwork component in this unit.
