These are comprised of cultural references, historic precedent, and prototypical models and paradigms. Students study creative areas influencing architecture and interior design, including cinema, animation, and video; photography, graphic design, and the fine arts; theatrical set and lighting design; fashion and fabric arts; science and nature; digital arts and technology; philosophy; and mythology.
