This course involves students designing a degree show for their self-generated project as developed in Interior Design 4A & 4B. They will be required to edit and curate their research and design work and present to a professional level their final scheme. This should be done in the context of a year group degree show, with each student responsible for their own presentation, but agreeing as a group the basic format of display.
They should produce images that show their Interior Design proposals in a realistic manner, to complement the final scheme. Students will also be expected to design and produce a bound design book that details the entire project journey, edited from all information gathered and produced.
