Program Description:
Explore Danish Modernism and interior design traditions along with New Nordic ideas about interior architecture.  Enhance your design methods by approaching design problems from a contextual Scandinavian point of view.

  • Evolve a comprehensive and culturally based approach to designing interiors in a setting where both tradition and innovation are valued
  • Small studios of approximately 12 students create a close mentorship by DIS faculty and your network of peers
  • Your projects will be critiqued by designers, interior architects, and your peers in a cross-disciplinary context

The two tracks of this program ensure it is right for you if you are from a professional school of architecture or design, or if you come from a liberal arts background.  You wish to fully engage in the studio discourse, prepare for individual desk critique, and to invest time outside of studio hours developing projects.

>> Interior Architecture Studio (Spring ONLY)
You will develop your design skills through both the analysis of existing interiors and their materials, use of daylight, colors, and functional solutions, and through solving real-life spatial interior architectural problems within the Danish context.  You will work in physical and digital media to construct spatial models and further your graphic and verbal communication skills.
