Participants will enter the world of visual images, where they will begin to see the meanings and messages behind the styles and decorative images one encounters today. They will discover the inner workings of interior design and understand the essential elements of design that enable one to identify what to look for when observing design in the world around us to better understand design. They will also gain the insights needed to be a first-rate interior designer, by using this new knowledge to create their own designs with enhanced flair and creativity.
The course will include the definition, interpretation, application, and evaluation of design elements such as scale, texture, tone, harmony, rhythm, and connotations of space, to enhance visual literacy. This will enhance the participants’ awareness of design elements and how they are applied, in the broader sense, in the everyday world.
The course will also cover the essential underpinning knowledge, skills and attitudes required to establish criteria for the appropriate and effective evaluation of designs including aesthetic considerations, social and cultural context, and exploration of the narrative of design through a critical evaluation of existing examples.
Aim of the Course
