Course Description:
The emphasis in Interior Design Studio IV is programming and space planning for a complex office design. Students will become familiar with several office furniture systems and choose one for use in their office design. As in all studios, the design process will be the framework for all project development. Material from pre- and co-requisite studio and lecture courses will be incorporated into the design project. Prequisitite: AR 396A and AR 396B Co-Requisites: AR 393 and AR 397A 1:5:3

Educational Philosophy:

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, drawing, describing, modeling and drafting. 
 
I believe that the Design Process is a universal problem seeking process.  Every project and assignment shall be approached as a design problem.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Describe the components, features and function of office systems furniture, and select the appropriate furniture system to meet the needs of a particular client.
  2. Analyze the client's needs through programming the organizational charts, work flow and adjacency requirements.
  3. Design an office for the client within the context of an existing architectural building shell, including space planning, furniture layout, finish material selections, ceiling, and millwork design.
  4. Apply skills learned in pre and co-requisite courses to the presentation, including three dimensional drawings.


Core Assessment:
  • Application of information from field trips and/or speakers to a research project evaluating systems furniture. (outcome 1)
  • Participation in studio, including in individual and group critiques (outcomes 1-5)
  • Completion of each step in the design process for an office design for a  specific client following the steps in the design process and preparing appropriate visual and oral presentations at each step (outcomes 1-4)
  • Completion of  the core assessment project: Final design of an office for a specific client, including a graphic and oral presentation as well as construction documents. (outcome 1 through 4)

System analysis   20%
 
Grades:
A= 90%-100%
B= 80%-89%
C= 70%-79%
D= 60%-69%
F= 59% and below

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:

AR397B is a studio class.  Class format will include lecture/demonstration, discussion and group critiques of the work, as well as time to practice skills and techniques.  Group interaction speeds learning and increases the depth of study of 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 disruptions (i.e. phone calls, etc.) will be noted and reflected in the final grade.

Final Exam

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. Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  3. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  4. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".
  5. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  6. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  7. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
