Design Studio 1 introduces students to fundamental interior design issues including form, space, threshold, light, color, and scale through a series of design and analytical projects that emphasize the inventive and conceptual dimension of design. Assignments involve restrained sites with programs of only moderate complexity and size. Assignments build on the analytical and representational skills developed in the concurrent Representation and Spatial Analysis I course. Studio 1 contributes to the formation of a shared project-based vocabulary for interior designers by incorporating the analysis of canonical precedents into the design work of the studio. The first Design Studio in a sequence of four focuses on the design of interiors as the choreography of people and objects in space with the intent of creating meaning through sentient experience and physical interaction.
