  • Overview

    This course focuses on the architectural approach to retail projects and public interior spaces such as bars and restaurants, hotel lobbies, offices, shops, department stores, fair exposition, and pop up spaces. Students develop projects and learn how to control space both from the functional and the aesthetic point of view. During the course, students analyze different themes and are given the opportunity to observe first-hand professionals at work. Projects are developed with an emphasis on the conceptual research of optimal design solutions and solving functional and distribution problems. This class includes experiential learning with CEMI.
