Interior & Environmental Design

Work on display: Interior & Environmental Design

Our course operates at the intersection of architecture, design and art, and this year’s projects provides a platform for a dynamic range of proposals that explore the shifting social, spatial and technological conditions of the 21st century interior.

Our designers have been working in a variety of scales, context and sites, applying co-design and service design research to generate proposals that explore how we live, work, and play.

With a focus on societal issues, there are a variety of projects, installations and objects that reflect human occupation in the built environment, from healthcare in Dundee to disaster relief in the Bahamas. A focus on experimentation and enquiry into architecture and adaptive reuse is prevalent in many of the projects which include an exploration of immigration networking and healthy cultural exchanges in Glasgow, a bio–crematorium, an Urban Bothy Trail, and a live project with V&A Dundee that opens up the skateboarding lifestyle to a museum audience.

Throughout their studies, our students are actively encouraged to establish creative links to industry, with opportunities to work on national and international projects provided by the NHS, Marie Curie and the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland. These relationships provide a creative and a critical springboard into their future careers.

These design-led engagement tasks are at the core of their learning, opening up the possibilities of primary research methods and allowing them to develop their unique stance, which is reflected in the final projects that I am sure you will be impressed by.
