"Grasping the Intangible" is a reflection of the first stages of Interior Design education in three stages of a propaedeutic learning process prior to Design Studio courses, using drawing and light courses as a field of experimentation.
The home provides not only a private physical shelter but also a restorative environment with privacy and comfort for occupants’ well-being. It provides restoration significantly from the subjective perception of individuals’ positive and personal experiences with home. The goal of the study is to investigate potential healing design attributes of hospital rooms for adolescent patients and analyze the significant roles of a homelike ambience in promoting psychological well-being. A total of 106 adolescents, 47 patients and 59 non-patients, aged 14 to 18 years participated in this study. The presentation of the study will include a summary of the systematic review on the meaning and roles of home to occupants in various environment settings. The results of the study imply that adolescents’ environmental needs in hospital rooms are associated with the core qualities of home.
The use of hybrid class structure in a Contemporary Interior Architecture History course at graduate level allows for a new approach to class delivery. This inversion of the class structure allows for the actual physical experience of projects, while the virtual experience of the instructor and the group through blogs creates a new form of discussion and delivery of outcome.
Over the last decades, utopian and experimental projects, often unbuilt and sometimes unbuildable, have fuelled the architectural imagination and later influenced professional practice. Partially due to the recent history of the Interior Design discipline, most of these speculative proposals have rarely come from within Interior Design scholarship or practice. The seminar titled “Inside Utopia” offered in the Spring 2016 semester, sought to envision how the interior realm may play a critical role in an expanded conceptual and speculative design context. Writing and drawing were treated as generative design tools enabling students to engage in a process of spatial and graphic inquiry of the interior realm.
The validity, applicability, and feasibility of applying Integral Theory as illustrated in DeKay's "Integral Sustainable Design" will be explored through the creation of five separate designs. In addition this presentation will discuss how Integral Theory could be integrated into a studio or professional setting.
This study builds on previous work by examining the underlying attitudes towards historic preservation among design educators and how programs with historic preservation content are integrating this information.
