Interior Design

School of Art and Art History

INDE 201. Interior Design Studio I. 3 credits.

Studio focusing upon the design process and creating interior spaces. Projects involve investigations into syntax and design language, program interpretation, ritual, use and the constructed order of built space. Emphasis is upon experimentation, risk and play. Design studies will incorporate drawing, diagramming, models and writing.

INDE 202. Interior Design Studio II. 3 credits.

Design studio building on the fundamentals of 201. Projects will address both three-dimensional design of spaces and the objects within the spaces. Projects will include questions of ritual, ergonomics, material properties and full- scale prototypes. Introduction of workshop, digital graphics and photography incorporated in studio work. Prerequisite: INDE 201.

INDE 221. Architectural Graphics. 3 credits.

Introduction to the tools and craft of the constructed drawing. Drawing types include plan, elevation, section, axonometric, and perspective, with emphasis upon synthesis and understanding of volumetric space. Media explorations used to increase sensitivity to materials, craft and precision of drawing.

INDE/INDU 222. CAD I: Digital Design. 3 credits.

A studio course introducing computer-aided design experiences. Exploration of CAD, including terms, conventions and drawing techniques from beginning to intermediate concepts to two and three-dimensional tools and commands.

INDE 301. Interior Design Studio III. 3 credits.

Intermediate design studio building upon skills of 201-202 sequence. Projects will be of greater complexity, scope and technical requirement. Design studies will incorporate drawing, diagramming, models, digital studies and writing. Legal, industry and engineering requirements will be integrated into the learned poetics of design. Prerequisite: INDE 202.

INDE 302. Interior Design Studio IV. 3 credits.

Intermediate design studio building upon skills of INDE 302. Projects will be an extension of INDE 301 but with greater complexity, scope and technical requirement. Design studies will incorporate drawing, diagramming, models, digital studies and writing. Legal, industry and engineering requirements will be integrated into the learned poetics of design. Prerequisite: INDE 301.

INDE/INDU 322. CAD II: Digital Design. 3 credits.

An intermediate studio course incorporating computer-aided design experience in digital design. Continuation of CAD design processes from the foundation course toward advanced three-dimensional drawing techniques, solid modeling and rendering, lighting theory, plotting and animation. Prerequisite: INDE 222.

INDE 331. Materials and Methods I. 3 credits.

A lecture course introducing components and materials used in construction and building systems.

INDE 332. Materials and Methods II. 3 credits.

The second lecture class in a required sequence focused on building systems and materials. Topics introduced in INDE 331 are studied in greater depth with an emphasis on understanding the interrelationships among elements found in a complete construction documents package. Prerequisite: INDE 331.

INDE 370. History of Interior Design. 3 credits.

Survey of the evolution of design in interiors from ancient to modern times with emphasis on period and furniture styles and architectural backgrounds.

INDE 401. Interior Design Studio V. 3 credits.

An upper-level design studio building upon the design rigor and technical craft acquired in the 301-302 sequence. Expansion of the design role into collaborative teams, interdisciplinary teams, actual clients, service projects and competition projects. Prerequisite: INDE 302.

INDE 402. Interior Design Studio VI. 3 credits.

Final upper-level interior design studio culminating in a thesis project. Complete student initiative across every phase of the project. Prerequisite: INDE 401.

INDE/INDU 422. CAD III: Digital Design. 3 credits.

An advanced studio course expanding computer-aided design knowledge. Continued exploration of the digital virtual space from intermediate to advanced concepts of the design process, communication with diverse design programs, animation, sound and digital transformation. Prerequisite: INDE 322.

INDE 490. Special Studies in Interior Design. 1-3 credits.

Exploration of special student interests regarding research and development of aspects in the field. Independent work with faculty membersí supervision.

INDE 492. Professional Practices in Interior Design. 3 credits.

Procedures and practices involved in the interior design profession. Prerequisite: INDE 480.

INDE 495. Internship (0, 12). 3 credits.

Actual working experience with a professional designer. Prerequisite: Permission of the instructor.
