This subject was previously known as Interior Architecture Methods 1.
Interior Methods introduces the student to ways in which designers communicate aspects of the built environment. Sketching, diagramming, photography, modelling and technical drawing are all introduced as tools for communicating observations of the built environment visually. Hand drawing and physical modelling techniques, fundamental skills that form the foundation of all visual communication in design, are the foci of the unit. There is a fieldwork component in this unit.
