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: Pascal Anson and Michelle Edwards

This highly structured course begins by visiting and analysing existing interiors, hotels, 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. Further visits to places of design interest such as galleries, exhibitions, model-making shops and museums are also part of the course.

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 two and three-dimensional 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 a broad social and cultural background.
