Research in Interior Design: Design Thinking Lab

This research course applies Design Thinking Methodology to everyday problems in order to create human-centered innovations. Envisioned as a collaborative lab, it fosters the integration of research, problem-forming and problem-solving, aesthetics, technology, prototyping, and publishing, with a strong focus on user’s needs. It will address design needs through research on end users, creating a human-centric point of view as a guide. It will drive students to experiment with ideas, to analyze case studies and to build rapid prototypes, in order to test and communicate the proposed product. The aim is to have students finish the course with a completed object or space, designed to better the quality of life of a particular group of the population.

Planting Design

This planting design class begins with a study of the basic vocabulary of planting design utilizing The Planting design Handbook by Nick Robinson. The class continues with a series of exercises to develop a personal vocabulary of landscape forms and plant combinations suitable for professional practice. These studies culminate in one or two major service projects that the student develops from a concept design to a formal schematic design presentation for faculty, guest critics, and members of the community.
