Taught By: Faculty TBA

Section: A

CRN: 6169

Credits: 3

In 1906, Parsons introduced the first Interior Design curriculum in the United States, and this class will explore this legacy, and how it is being shaped today. Students will be introduced to the field of interior design through a series of assignments that reveal their relationship to interiors as well as projects that provide an overview of the interior design process, with a focus on concept development and application. Additionally, readings will expose students to the discourse of interior design and foster conversation about how this industry is perceived in society, how it has changed over time, and where it might be headed. Students will also have the chance to attend field trips to firms and showrooms and learn from professionals about the expanding range of responsibility carried by contemporary interior designers in New York City. Students discover what interior designers do, and what is shaped through the practices of interior design. Fundamentally, this class will introduce different elements that shape an interior space from lighting, materials, color, volumetric elements, sustainability, and more.
