This 2-Year PG Pathway in Interior Design & Styling explores the interior built environment through the lens of an inhabitant. The pathway explores the interactions between people and their cultures, emotions, and activities through various social functions of living, working, resting, and playing. The approach integrates technical, functional, theoretical, materials, aesthetics, and creative processes of design, with a strong emphasis on critical thinking, independent learning, and both social and ecological consciousness. After an essential exposure to the underlying history and theory of interior design and practical applications through design studio projects, students take advantage of a flexible elective curriculum that covers typologies across residential and commercial spaces.
The course initially focuses on developing sensory-perceptual skills by sensitising one to interior design material and techniques. The foundation aims at bringing learners from diverse backgrounds to a common platform of design understanding to make them ready for design learning in their specific design disciplines. In this course, students will be exposed to a wide range of theoretical, design, technical, and communication contexts. They will also be able to apply this knowledge further to design principles and stylise complex spaces.
Later semesters will develop further understanding of the knowledge and skills required for interior design and styling. Students need to establish the importance of visualising, conceptualising, and ideating interior design through a process of exploration and experimentation. The focus is on the correlation between design and the market. Students learn to integrate their knowledge with commercial practices and market requirements. This helps students develop a design philosophy and style of their own. A mature approach and independent working philosophy are expected throughout the course.
The curriculum at this level emphasises on independent work and critical evaluation of said work. Students soon advance to complex and integrated projects, wherein they are required to apply all the design, technical, theoretical, and business knowledge gained, coupled with the knowledge gained in the last two semesters and the research and surveys conducted for their concept development through classroom contact learning and virtual platforms, using the dedicated institution learning management system.
This project is a cohesive amalgamation of well-researched and creative expressions, encompassing all the learning involved in the previous semesters.
