This studio has been developed to provide a focus on the physical and psychological needs of the inhabitants of interior space. The semester will focus on the conceptual process of designing and the utilization of diagramming techniques for design exploration and development. Both digital and analog tools will be employed, with an emphasis will be on the physical manifestation of the concept. An introduction of the implications of fenestration, vertical circulation, structure, and materials will be applied through the study of real building situations, both in precedent/case study and overall project development. The resulting interior will be built based on the work from these early design phases.
During this studio course, students will adhere to a rigorous agenda in order to follow a design problem from concept through to a set of presentation drawings.
This course may be counted toward the independent inquiry flag requirement. For more information about this designation visit http://www.utexas.edu/ugs/flags/students/about
