Architects, Interior Designers, Landscape Architects and Industrial Designers are responsible for the creation of the spaces and objects that we use every day. The environment, physical space, and objects that surround us affect how we function on a daily basis. Students will gain knowledge of these art fields through in-depth study that will include readings, videos, and guest speakers. Knowledge of these fields will be applied to authentic learning experiences through the creation of sketches, architectural drafting, elevations, model building and computer aided design. Visits to design studios and field trips will be a part of the course. Students planning a career in these fields will build portfolios of their work.
