Design is a process that involves generating ideas, editing and refining those ideas and producing the final result. It is both individual and collaborative, creative and meticulous. It involves critical thinking and effective communication through writing, drwing, decsribing, modeling and drafting.
I believe in the universality and importance of the Design Process. Learning the process of design will enable one to apply tht process to any problem, whether it be a written document, the design of a space, or the design of a product. Every project and assignment shall be approached as a design problem.
Class Assessment: The learning in this course will be assessed from small projects and papers assigned to students and two large multifaceted projects. A range of interior design topics will be represented in the projects including residential design and commercial design. Students will experience critiques of their work and be taught to use the criticism constructively to refine their designs.
40% - Assignments
30% - Residential design project
20% - Commercial design project
10% - Critiques
Late Submission of Course Materials: Many assignments will have an oral presentation component. There will be no make up dates for missed presentation, but work may be turned in at the next class meeting for partial credit. A written excuse must be attached.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
AR292B is primarily a studio class. Class periods include lecture/demonstration, discussion and group critiques of work, as well as time to work on design assignments and projects in a studio setting. Students are expected to come to class with tools and supplies, prepared to work. The design studio class provides a group setting where students learn by individual as well as group experiences. Group interaction speeds learning and increases the depth of study for all. Feedback from the instructor is an important element of learning. Therefore, class attendance is required.
In addition, students are expected to spend a minimum of six hours a week outside of class on projects for this studio. The studio space is available to students when it is not scheduled for other classes.
A professional and respectful attitude toward the instructor and fellow students is expected - tardiness of more that 10 minutes, leaving before class is dismissed, and other class disruptions(i.e. phone calls, etc.)will be noted and reflected in the final grade.
