This subject was previously known as Interior Design Studio 10 - Future.
This theory informed design studio subject aims to synthesise and stretch the students' understanding and application of design methodologies towards speculating on and imagining new visions for the future. It focuses on extreme, complex and bizarre environments, such as space travel or the underground bunker. Philosophical and theoretical readings are explored as other ways of thinking and seeing the world. Similarly, possibilities for geographic, built and spatial typologies and material realities are investigated. Design prototyping and testing are to be done through digital fabrication and simulated environments. This subject involves fieldwork.
Please Note: If it’s your first time studying a Curtin University subject you’ll need to complete their compulsory ‘Academic Integrity Program’. It only takes two hours to complete online, and provides you with vital information about studying with Curtin University. The Academic Integrity Program is compulsory, so if it’s not completed your subject grades will be withheld.
