This subject was previously known as Interior Architecture Technology System Solutions.

This unit explores the complexities of effective system integration within interior environments. Acoustic, lighting, hydraulic and mechanical systems are given particular focus and these are investigated through interactions with specialist consultants, researching and analysing case studies, and observations of construction and detailing in a local context. Students will begin to interrogate the role of the interior designer as part of a network of professional consultants.
