Course Objectives The aim of the course is to improve Interior Design students’ skills to identify problem, sense, and question, analyze, synthesize, decide and solve, create; to prepare students to projects that have more design problems; to save them skill for three dimensional thinking and expressing during etude and presentation phases. The aim of the course is to improve students’ skills to Using the principles and elements of design, evaluation of environmental data, including theme-concept in producing different interior and exterior spaces, given to the user to the desired message, with the contribution of neighbourhoods that reflect the original design creation space while the design decisions.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Gain skill to do analyses during the design process.
  • Learn to do synthesis depending on the results of the analyses, develop alternative solutions as a result of the analyses and synthesis.
  • Gain skill to decide on unique design.
  • Prepare two dimensional works presents convenient design language.
  • Solve problems of interior spaces that include human-environment relations.
Course Content The problem of analyzing an interior space that includes human-environment (residence) relations; a working process in which functional relations in design covered and the formation is developed by creative skills.
