Descrição

Interior Architecture challenges the existing architectural fabric and context, remodelling space through architectural intervention. It is inclined towards a language that questions the idea of interiority relative to a variety of scales from room, to building to city.



Why study BA Interior Architecture at Middlesex University?

The Interior Architecture programme is centrally concerned with the adaptation and remodelling of existing buildings. It bridges the practices of interior design and architecture, sometimes dealing with complex structural, environmental and servicing problems. The course encompasses a diverse range of project and building types and engages with both single and multi functional use within public, private and commercial realms.



The programme can also be taken over four years in a sandwich mode that includes a one year...

Quais são os objetivos da formação?

The practice of interiors is frequently described as 'placemaking', which demands an explicit articulation of the functional, physical and experiential relationships between the existing and original, and the new, imagined and sustainable re use of the built environment. The subject of 'the interior' is explored at Middlesex in two closely related but distinct courses, BA Interior Architecture and BA Interior Design, but both aim to:



Question the meaning and limits of the term 'interior', considering both speculative and real conditions

Develop a dialogue between the old and the new, the real and the imagined, and time and space

Challenge students to experiment and innovate in the processes of creating environments for human occupation

Explore the diverse and interdisciplinary nature of the interior and its cultural and historical context

Consider issues relative to temporality and the interior

Promote rigor, professionalism and excellence in the realisation of interior space

Encourage the advancement of our lived in environments and the way we live and experience them

Further the sustainable/thoughtful use of materials, buildings and cities; promote awareness of ecological issues.

Requisitos: Interviews, entrance tests, portfolios and auditions The application is just the first step in our selection process, we also invite you to an interview and review your portfolio of art and design work. Your portfolio We've put together a short video to help you prepare your portfolio.

Programa

Learning on the course is based on a sequence of 'integrated design projects', in which you are asked to apply and demonstrate various aspects of your learning, as well as your individual creativity and originality, to specified design tasks. Projects are supplemented by a variety of lecture, seminar and workshop sessions to provide specialist skills and knowledge. Your ideas and proposals will be tested and explored in regular tutorials and reviews, in which critical evaluation, guidance and feedback is provided, and from which you will be expected to develop and improve your work.

The curriculum focuses on six core learning strands which are developed progressively throughout all years of the course.

Design Thinking and Processes — How designers research, analyse and make decisions, and how the design of interiors is initiated, conceptualized, developed, sanctioned, and realised
Materiality and Technics — How and from what interiors are constructed, assembled and operate technically and technologically
Environment and Performance — How environmental and sustainability issues and post occupancy performance and adaptability are addressed in the design, construction and use of interiors
Contextual and Critical Analysis — How contextual factors frame, inform and constrain the design of interiors, and their analysis and interpretation
Communication and Media — How the design of interiors is represented and communicated across a range of media and techniques
Reflective and Professional Practice — How reflective practice is applied in design, and how professional skills are employed in design practice.
