COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course enables you to extend your understanding and skills in designing, problem solving and visual communication in the fields of spatial design (architecture, landscape, interior design etc.) and product design (including industrial and technological design).

You will develop an awareness of the social context of design.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

You will learn through tackling classroom exercise to develop new skills and knowledge and applying these skills to three design projects.
