Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Core Assessment Project Description:
Students will design a Lobby Space with emphasis on selecting appropriate furniture for the space and designing a custom reception desk.
As in previous projects, the design process will be the framework for all project development. Material from 396_A_Interior Design Studio 3: Drawing Systems II will be incorporated into the design collaboration of this project.
Core Assessment Project Objectives:
Upon completion of this project, the student will be skilled at developing and evaluating the design of multiple prototypes for a commercial reception deck and be well versed in the evaluation and selection of furniture for the “lobby space.” The student will complete a design that is attuned to the anthropometric and ergonomic requirements of the user. The student will investigate the use of materials, tools and techniques to translate design concepts to a final prototype. In addition, the student will:
· Evaluate the design based on the construction method and quality of materials.
· Design a furniture piece, graphically communicating design concept(s) using sketches and drawings, construction details and models.
· Design and produce construction and presentation drawings for a custom reception desk in the context of an interior space.
· Successfully select various pieces of furniture based on the style context of the space and evaluate the given pieces by the principles of Utilitas, Venustas, Firmitas.
· Process Booklet
· Presentation Boards with rendered floor plans, two rendered elevations of reception desk in context, material samples and furniture images.
· Model of reception desk

Late Submission of Course Materials: Late Submission of Course Materials:
Late work will not be accepted without a legitimate written excuse attached. Late work must be turned in (with excuse attached) by the beginning of the next scheduled class or the assignment grade will be lowered 5%. An additional 5% subtracted for each class period that the work is late. Many assignments have an oral presentation component. There will be no make up dates for missed presentations, and regardless of excuse, the student will not recieve points for the presentation component of the assignment.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
AR396A is a studio class. Class format will include lecture/demonstration, discussion and group critiques of work, as well as time to practice visual communication skills and techniques. Group interaction speeds learning and increases the depth of study for all. Feedback from the instructor is an important element of learning. Students are expected to come to class with tools and supplies, prepared to work in class. The studio and computer lab will be available for students' use when the rooms are not scheduled for other classes. Students are expected to work a minimum of six hours a week outside of class, in addition to making full use of studio time.
A professional and respectful attitude toward the instructor and fellow students is expected. Tardiness, leaving before class is dismissed, and other class disruptions (i.e. phone calls, etc.) will be noted and reflected in the final grade.
Course Topic/Dates/Assignments: See Attachment
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85-86
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing.

Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-88Instructor's Attendance Policy:
Class attendance is required. An attendance sheet will be passed around at the beginning of each class while announcements are being made. It is the student's responsibility to sign the attendance sheet at this time. Students who do not sign the attendance sheet, but arrive after it is distributed, will be considered late. Three late arrivals will equal one absence.
In case of illness or emergency, the instructor must be notified prior to class by sending an e-mail message. Each student will be allowed three absences, which, if proper notification is sent, will be recorded as "excused." Thus each of the following will result in a 5% deduction from the final grade:
1. Three "tardies" equalling one unexcused absence.
2. Any absence that is not excused by a written (e-mail)notification.
3. The fourth and each subsequent absence, regardless of excuse.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
