An introduction to the concept of materiality within the context of the interior environment. Students will investigate materials and their contribution to the experience of the built environment through studio sessions and interactions with industry. Materials will be explored as elements in construction, with consideration to lifecycle. Material detailing, with emphasis on basic joinery construction will be explored. Professional drafting skills and design-problem solving skills will be developed through the production of a full documentation package for a small scale project.
