ID 320 - Global Sustainable Interior Design Studio

A global look at sustainable interior design strategies that are applied to studio projects of increasing size and complexity. Students are introduced to advanced integrated design programming, concept development, schematic design, design development, and presentation. Special focus on international environmentally responsible design, universal design, building codes, environmental assessment tools, and sustainable design rating systems. Students select from commercial, institutional, and residential environments to be further investigated within a studio setting. The “study abroad component” of the course includes pre-departure orientation seminars covering all aspects of the tour: opportunities for investigation, group dynamics, problem solving, and team spirit created by cohesiveness within the classroom. During the March spring break, students participate in a professionally led study and research opportunity in a host country. Students investigate sustainable design issues, philosophies, and practice of other cultures, as well as historical context.
