What will I learn?

OverviewInterior 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 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 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 professional placement within the design industry, taken after your 2nd year of study. This enables you to incorporate a substantial professional practice element in your studies, for which you will receive an Advanced Diploma Professional Practice: Interior Architecture & Design at graduation.
