86006 - History and Theory 1 (or exemption)


86007 - History and Theory 2 is the second foundational History and Theory subject within the Interior Architecture undergraduate program. Throughout the semester, students participate in a series of interactive lectures and discussions around European, Asian and Islamic Interior Architecture. The analysis includes the impact political, social and artistic movements such as the enlightenment, industrial revolution and postcolonialism have had on the production of interior space.
During tutorial sessions, students participate in 3 x 3-week modules aimed at looking at the details, ornaments and compositional strategies of the periods covered in the lectures.
Through text and drawing, students are expected to gain an understanding of both the form and context of given examples across both time and cultures setting up a solid basis for further research and design work in the coming semesters.
