Exhibition design is inherently interdisciplinary with practitioners coming from a wide variety of design disciplines. The domain of the designer includes corporate trade shows and events, curated museum displays, travelling exhibitions and the emerging area of short term ‘pop up’ spaces.During the course of the semester students will learn about the the history and evolution of exhibition and display as a cultural marker in societies; the palette of materials and tools at the designer’s disposal and they will also be exposed to a broad range of case studies to highlight the variety of possible design outcomes.Assignments will involve interdisciplinary group work, undertaking tasks to build understanding of the issues in professional exhibition design. This course is ideal for those undertaking a design focused degree.
