This subject was previously known as Interior Architecture Functional Fundamentals.
An introduction to fundamental aspects of interior architecture practice including building standards and codes, documentation drawings, and basic principles of construction and detailing. Floors, walls and ceilings are investigated as interior construction systems. Aspects of compliance to building codes are introduced to inform universally accessible solutions to interior environments and appropriate approaches to vertical circulation. Computer aided drawing is introduced to form the communication tool for much of the assessment content.
