Students will complete in-depth presentations including project analysis, concept statements, custom interior detailing, integration of building systems, lighting, interior finishes, selection of appropriate materials, textiles, and color, sustainable materials, specifications, construction documents (partition plan, power and communications, reflected ceiling plan, elevations, finish plan, details, furniture plan); and sample boards. Project management and professional discipline are developed by the complexity of project requirements. Formal presentations are reinforced by design specifications applied in the student documentation Business forms generated in ID 451 are completed to document supporting business practices processes throughout the design process. Drafting, CADD, millwork detailing, models and rendered perspectives are reinforced by professional presentation layouts. Projects will integrate all aspects of the curriculum.
