An online undergraduate unit provided by Curtin University and Open Universities Australia, Interior Architecture Functional Fundamentals contextualises development in creative thinking and practice related to interior architecture through an exploration of local and international design history and theory. You will develop the tools to identify a range of ergonomic and anthropometric design constraints, build an understanding of professional standards as applied to interior design and examine the ways in which the human body and mind interact with functional objects and interior spaces.
On completion of this unit, you will be able to identify key industry standards and regulations in relation to the interior design process, analyse theoretical and historical influences and discuss the relationships between human proportion and built scale as applied to a design outcome. You will also be expected to synthesise your knowledge of design theory, material application and ergonomics into a detailed documentation and design of a functional object.
This unit is delivered through a range of learning resources and materials, including discussion forums, web links, standard media, printable materials and online assignment submission. Assessment consists of a model and drawing assignment, a case study and a group research project.
