Core subject



This subject offers critical and practical experiences to develop fundamental skills and techniques for the communication of spatial interiors. Students develop a detailed understanding of the foundational principles, theories, and methods of interior architectural representation. Drawings are explored as tools to document space, explore processes and communicate ideas and students are asked to consider how the interior architectural drawing captures complex cultural, technological, and spatial ideas.

Students learn, by practice and refinement, the principles of a range of communication techniques, and processes relevant to Interior Architecture including orthographic projections, axonometric and perspective drawings, scales of representation, hierarchies and composition techniques and the mapping of interior spatial conditions. Students examine these principles by actively deploying processes that combine analogue and digital techniques.
