About this course:
The architecture of a structure and its building systems must be considered in the interior design process in order to meet functional and aesthetic criteria. This course deals with the basic construction and materials of both commercial and residential buildings, and the process through which a building passes from concept to move-in. This includes components, connections, the mechanical systems necessary for heating, air-conditioning, electrical wiring, and plumbing, and the drawings required for professional interior design practice. On-site visits to construction sites supplement studio lectures, demonstrations, and projects.
It is advisable that you complete the following (or equivalent) since they are prerequisites for Interior Detailing and Building Systems.
All courses through the fifth quarter in the Interior Design Certificate (see curriculum sequence).
