BA Interior Design
This course covers all aspects of interior architecture and spatial design. It develops an ability to manipulate and divide volume and space within interior environments and awareness of community, social and global issues. Some projects are based on real buildings and sites, including regeneration and adaptive re-use of constructions. This includes converting old warehouses and factories into exciting new cafe-bars and living spaces. Other projects focus on flexible installations within existing environments, such as retail plazas, transport hubs, exhibitions and TV scenography design. Students develop personal skills through drawing, 3D modelling, computing and the video-modelscope. Year One encourages creativity and experimentation and provides basic knowledge, techniques and skills. Years Two and Three encourage diversification through module and project choice. Studies include investigative and research methodology, and an awareness of relevant technology and legislation. In Year Three, students pursue individual projects and enter national design competitions, which are often won by DMU students.
