This course serves as an introduction for interior design students to cultivate knowledge of industry standards, as well as innovative hard and soft materials, in relation to direct application in forming and defining space. Materials are considered as matter for their phenomenological effects and their cultural, historical and contemporary applications in interior design. Consideration is given to the human and environmental impact of material choices and their deployment in interior assemblies. As a seminar, assignments will be both individual and team-based and will include a number of on-site field trips.
