Synopsis: This unit and IAR2114 are the key units for developing interior architecture design capabilities. In this unit, the focus is on exposing students to problems which include a variety of interior architectural factors, and applying methodologies to coordinate their analysis and to achieve a holistic integrated design that addresses human needs. The projects are set in a variety of contexts, involving simple construction and structural requirements and basic service issues.
