Master of Fine Arts in Interior Design | Thesis 2011

Focused design research on an aspect of the interior design field that is most significant to each individual student is the focus of graduate thesis. With the guidance of thesis faculty, research and investigation aim to advance the theoretical, technical, material and/or formal state of knowledge in the field of interior design. Thesis projects, which culminate in both a design proposal and a supportive written text, involve rigorous analytical thinking, critical questioning and coherent project development. These explorations synthesize some of the most important issues relevant to the field today. An acute understanding of environmental impact, human health, behavior and perception, social responsibility, historical precedent, theoretical understanding, material investigation and artistic methodologies are explored. Innovative methods and designs result in these first thesis projects.
