Core subject: Context


This subject is the third in a series of four representation and construction-focused context subjects. It is also the fifth in the Context subject series.

This subject focuses on the design of interior atmospheres. The subject facilitates the learning required to understand how these conditions are produced and the materials and technologies that support them. Students are required to research a range of atmospheric interiors and apply this research to all required assessment tasks.

The subject addresses a set of technical exercises orientated to assist student understanding of construction as a hierarchical set of relationships between construction, material and technological systems. During lectures and tutorials, students explore the details, processes and steps to convert design proposals into real projects ready for production. This is executed to the level expected by industry standards.

Students are required to produce technical plans and sections, details, 3D models and other production documents to explain with technical and stylistic rigour the true and subjective representations of interior atmospheric conditions.
