Year 4 design studio focuses on the agency of the interior within the context of the urban morphologies and civic typologies of the twenty-first century city. As the culminating student experience of the BIA, the studios will act as an environment in which the knowledge and skills acquired over the previous 3 years can be synthesised, refined and communicated with proficiency, over a 24 week project development, mirroring the processes, products and dispositions of a professional design practice.
Civic Interiorscapes – Investigation incorporates a research phase and its translation into a design proposition. The research phase will comprise of site, heritage and context analysis, which will inform the development of the student’s brief for the project in the form of a Design Research Report and Project Brief. Using the report and brief as the research underpinning, students will then propose an initial design response in the form of a primary spatial move. The outcome from this studio is the design research, design brief and design proposition that will form the basis of the final design studio, Civic Interiorscapes - Realisation.
