The Bachelor of Design Honours in Interior Architecture in Architecture is offered by University of Technology Sydney.
Program Length: 1 YEAR.
The Bachelor of Design (Honours) in Interior Architecture helps students to re-imagine interior environments and public spaces in local and global contexts. With a strong emphasis on people's experiences of space, this degree equips students with the critical skills required to interrogate and transgress the traditional boundaries of commercial interior design.The course enhances employability through the development of a portfolio. The course allows students to develop skills in a specialised area, such as performative space, commercial interiors or residential interior design. Uniquely, digital technologies of representation, fabrication, internationalisation and design practice are emphasised.The degree offers students a path from undergraduate through to postgraduate coursework and research study, including a PhD. Often the first step towards a research degree, an honours degree allows students to undertake self-determined, critical research and apply this to a specific project. Students prove their ability to develop and respond to a complex design brief, and develop innovative, holistic and professional design solutions.
This course uses project-based learning to allow students to develop a focused portfolio. Through their study, students develop spatial intelligence and excellence in design practice. The program fosters a creative and explorative attitude towards the design process, underpinned by reflective and critical engagement. Students generate a cohesive design approach where research and practice are consolidated in design outcomes.The course has:
- an emphasis on creative, innovative spatial practice and international networks
- practice-oriented and research-integrated learning regarding specific projects
- engagement with innovative and creative technologies
- an emphasis on emerging design practices
- close links with creative practitioners.
