In an attempt to develop an attitude of personal commitment the students will not only be evaluated on the end products, but the individual design process, commitment and studio participation. Emphasis will be placed on the development and understanding of a conceptual approach to designing. Projects will be reviewed by open juries comprising of students, departmental lecturers, and studio critics.

In this course the students’ attention will be focused on:

Critically analyse and respond to the design brief;
Relate knowledge of anthropometrics, ergonomics & spatial organization;

Select & specify necessary finishes, furniture and equipment for the design project; Comprehend the impacts of socio-cultural issues on their design decisions;

Prepare a presentation to communicate their design project through oral, written and visual materials.
