Comments about BA Interior Architecture & Design - At the institution - London - Greater London
This course explores the links between interior design and architecture, challenging you to question how interiors are inhabited and experienced. It asks you to think about how spaces are manipulated, how buildings are understood and reinvented and helps you to uncover a provocative world of interiors, architecture and culture. We encourage you to investigate ideas and develop design skills, including model-making and workshop-based fabrications, drawing and representation, using photography, film, video, IT and CAD. You will have extensive contact with practicing architects and designers and will work on a wide range of design projects.
Applicants with standard UK qualifications should have 240 points from two or more A-levels. We recommend that you have completed an Art and Design Foundation, BTEC or Access course. We admit a wide range of students with academic or professional experience, including equivalent overseas qualifications or related work experience. We look for potential in spatial design, creative imagination and visual or constructive aptitude, together with ability and motivation to complete the course. We normally require you to attend an interview and present an art and design portfolio.
