Summer Study Abroad - Interior Design
This highly structured course begins by visiting and analysing existing interiors, hotels, retail spaces, restaurants and bars in London.
Taught by: Michelle Edwards and Pascal Anson
This is a 3 week course for students of all levels and experience interested in interior design. Through a structured method of problem solving and unique thinking, this highly structured course begins by analysing existing interiors, retail spaces, restaurants and bars in London. You will learn how to 'read' an interior. After the design project brief is given, the course will involve a mix of creative exercises and workshops. This will lead you through the basics of interior design as well as the fundamentals of the design process to completing a finished project. We have a ‘hands on’ and practical approach to the design process. Design for us, is all about thinking through making and doing. The course provides you with a structure where creative ideas, drawing techniques (both technical skills and sketch visualisation) and model making enable you to be confident when presenting your ideas. The course will provide you with high quality and dynamic 2D and 3D work, which may be used in your portfolio, as well as demonstrating good practice in research through producing a dynamic sketchbook. You can expect an intense and challenging studio experience with fellow students from broad social and cultural backgrounds.
