What will I learn?

BA (Hons) Interior Design is concerned with the occupation of space, how it is used and importantly, how it is experienced. We promote the understanding and subsequent remodelling of existing spaces, in order to create meaningful interventions. This course views interior design as a distinct, rigorous practice. Through architectural and design interventions, we engage with collaborative and creative ventures to enhance human interaction with their environment. This can be applied at an architectural scale whilst appreciating the detail and fabrication of objects, surfaces and materials.The core elements of the course are taught by practising designers and architects, touching on all aspects of interior design such as interior architecture, exhibition design, event /set design or object/element design.The course advocates the synthesis of this ideology as a creative, rigorous and intellectual process. We value ideas, invention and practical resolution in the creation of new, and often unconventional interior identities. We can create experiential, experimental or functional spaces. We shape environments, generate identities, question programmes, detail objects, design or specify materials and furniture. Ultimately, we place human involvement with space at the centre of all our endeavours.**FEATURES AND BENEFITS**- Regular live projects throughout the course which have included exhibition design with Crosby Land Lease Developers, furniture design for The Design Council, office design for McCann Erickson and industry-set briefs for Top Shop and Pret A Manger.- Opportunities to undertake study trips to key design cities, recent trips have including Berlin, Rotterdam, Chicago, Venice and New York.- Students have previously participated in exchange visits to Australia, Canada, the USA and Europe.- Visiting designers and lecturers assist in the course team via lectures, projects and workshops.- You will take part in Unit X, an innovative unit offered to students across Manchester School of Art; it encourages interdisciplinary study and collaboration on an external-facing project.**This course is subject to a review which may mean a change to the units of study.**
