Interior design is a clearly expressed system created to respond to multiple demands for identity, performance, emotional and physical comfort of individuals and groups. Course contents deal with concept design, space planning, interior layout, and display. The program provides discerning insights into the language of materials, lighting, color, furniture and the integration of technical components. The relation with the building is deeply investigated. All these aspects meet in the studio classes led by renowned professionals that support the creation of a working knowledge base. Collaborations with brands and institutions enable the students to comprehend how interiors communicate the brand values in a retail environment or in a corporate space through the use of architectural elements and spatial graphics. As a result of this education, on the one hand, students are encouraged to develop a conceptual approach in design practice gaining a strategic understanding of elements and processes involved. On the other hand, technical representation and architectural detailing serve the students as a mirror for reviewing their design and refining their professional skills.
