Section: A

CRN: 5345

Credits: 3

In this course, we will investigate the role of color and ornament in determining the quality and experience of an environment. Building on the fundamentals of color theory, students will investigate how scale, pattern, frequency/interval and saturation can alter the interior environments that we inhabit. With a focus on color, ornament, and scale, our appreciation and understanding of place will be considered with respect to variables of size, style, and rhythm. Projects will demonstrate the study of pattern, from its origins and application to how pattern and volume support each other in the composition of an interior.

Open to: All university undergraduate degree students with restrictions. Pre-requisite(s): PUID 2010 Design Studio 1 or PUAD 2010 Design Studio 1 or PUPD 2010 Design Studio 1. Note, seats are reserved for AAS Interior Design Majors.
