You should not enrol in this subject if you have successfully completed any of the following subject(s) because they are considered academically equivalent:
- CUR-BIA370-Exploration and Manifestation of Interiors (No longer available)
- Equipment requirements - Webcam, Speakers, Microphone
This subject was previously known as BIA370 Exploration and Manifestation of Interiors.
This innovative subject examines narratives of occupation, of use, and of making, as embedded in designed products that constitute the interior. Through a series of explorations and testings, students use technology to create a prototype object that has purpose and feasibility for the design industry. Emphasis is placed upon future-thinking and finding simple ways to communicate narratives of construction, use, and occupation. Practices of environmental sustainability are also considered in students’ final products.
