Materials are one of the primary tools the Interior designer has to express their ideas. In the sophomore year students are learning the fundamentals of representation, creative and critical thinking, and history/theory. A comprehensive overview to materials, furnishings and products is introduced in the second semester as a means of broadening their base of knowledge and enabling them to begin conceiving of how interior design goes from a concept into a physical environment. Students learn the properties and varieties of materials and products available, traditional as well as non-traditional applications of materials, and new materials that are going to shape the future. Working within steps of the Donghia Material Library, students have an incredible resource of materials available for their research, and are able to fully utilize the lab.
