ID 407/607 Practice Studio III


ID-407 Practice Studio III

Continuation of the studio sequence with focus on creativity and the design process in the built environment for areas of healing, restoration, and well-being. Programming and methodological inquiry will be used for problem solving in order to form a knowledge base for developing an in- depth research topic. Emphasis is on barrier-free design concepts, universal design application, and building and life safety codes. Collaborative teamwork skills and community service work will be major components of the course requirements. 

Studio. Prerequisite: Grade of C- or better in ID 306. (3) 

Course Objectives

Upon completion of the course, the student will be expected to:
    1. Analyze the requirement needs of a specific healing or restorative environment with unique spatial and user requirements;
    2. Evaluate and choose the most effective barrier free and universal design strategies for the built environment to create the designs;
    3. Select and justify appropriate building codes and life safety codes and standards for the specific interior environment.
    4. Continued exploration and evaluation of conceptual and practical issues relative to site selection, programming, space planning, circulation, volume, furnishings, color, and texture in the design of interior space.
    5. Incorporate the skills and knowledge gained from previous coursework, evidence-based design, and community service to create a comprehensive project, including presentation drawings, models, material and furniture selections, detail drawings and specifications.
    6. Develop collaborative team skills in the design and planning process as it relates to the design team, consultants, distributors, clients, contractors, and other project participants.
    7. Understand aspects of social responsibility of interior design through the involvement in public and/or community service projects

                ID-607 Graduate Practice Studio III

                Studio focusing on an interdisciplinary approach to complex problems in the interior environment for the practice areas of healing, restoration, and well-being.  Case studies, programming briefs, literature reviews, and collaborative teamwork are used to create evidence-based design solutions that incorporate creativity, human factors data, barrier-free and universal design concepts, life-safety codes, and building codes. 

                Studio. Prerequisite: B- or better in ID 606. (3) 

                Course Objectives

                Upon completion of the course, the student will be expected to:
                1. Define and categorize relevant aspects of design problems, including programmatic needs and specific functions for healing or restorative environments to meet unique and specific spatial requirements and diverse cultural and human factors needs;
                2. Appraise the conceptual and practical issues relative to site selection, programming, space planning, circulation, volume, furnishings, color, and texture in the design of interior space in the practice areas of healing, restoration, and well being;
                3. Generate and apply findings from systematic case studies, literature reviews of current resources and research to workplace or educational or institutional interiors, and the programming process to create a programming brief that meets functional and user needs for healing and restorative environments
                4. Evaluate and choose the most effective barrier free and universal design strategies for built environments that stress healing, restoration and well being of the users;
                5. Justify choices of appropriate building codes and life safety codes and standards for the specific interior environment;
                6. Synthesize the skills and knowledge gained from previous coursework, evidence-based design, and community service to create a comprehensive solution to a design project, including presentation drawings, models, material and furniture selections, detail drawings and specifications;
                7. Demonstrate collaborative team skills in the design and planning process as related to the design team, consultants, distributors, clients, contractors, and other project participants.
