ID 606 Graduate Practice Studio II

Studio focusing on development of comprehensive design solutions for the practice areas of workplace, educational, or governmental interior design. Surveys and/or interviews, literature reviews, innovative design concepts, and brand identity are used to create evidence-based design solutions that emphasize creativity, principles of sustainability, life-safety codes, and building codes. 

Studio. Prerequisite: B- or better in ID 545 and 605. (3)

Course Objectives

  1. Strategically design workplace, educational, or governmental interior environments for creativity and productivity and that respond to the physical and psychological needs of people;
  2. Define and evaluate relevant aspects of a design problem, including programmatic needs and space requirements for specific functions and varying social and cultural needs in workplace, educational or institutional interiors; 
  3. Generate, analyze, and apply findings from systematic interviews and/or surveys, literature reviews of current resources and research to workplace or educational or institutional interiors;
  4. Apply the iterative design process to generate multiple responses and concepts to a design problem and, through analysis and synthesis of data, choose the best solution; 
  5. Integrate new design layouts that develop from and respond to structure and building systems, environmental systems and controls of a base building shell; 
  6. Evaluate and select appropriate human factors data, principles of sustainability, universal design concepts, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and building and life safety code requirements for workplaces, educational or institutional interiors with an emphasis on egress, barrier-free design, fire suppression and detection; and vertical circulation;
  7. Formulate creative solutions with appropriate color choices based upon multiple purposes, such as behavioral, aesthetic, and symbolic considerations; lighting, FF&E; and detailing;
  8. Clearly express design concepts and solutions through oral and graphic communication using well-defined presentation techniques;
