INAD 201 Studio 3 (2-8) 6
This third semester studio focuses on developing personal design statements through an understanding of social, cultural and architectural environments. Emphasis will be placed on the structure and materials selection of all architectural components suggested in the design resolve. Students will also experiment with texture, light and color application focusing on the role of experiential perception and detailing, students will experiment with texture, light and color application to interior space design.
