pratt studio II

Interior Design Studio II, Spring 18
Pratt Institute, Visiting Assistant Professor

This course continues to focus on our relationship to space, form and the environment on a more sophisticated level, building on Studio I. Human occupancy and experience is further investigated through materiality, sustainability, spatial planning and designing for complex programs. Students will problem-solve through analytical and critical thinking, writing and designing with consideration of professional problems of a modern scope. The projects will progress from the investigation and application of a material generator, to identifying, questioning and designing prototypical spatial components, to a full scale collaborative construction rooted in sustainability, and will culminate with a final project which considers all the above and addresses global social conditions through a local lens.
