On this portfolio preparation course you'll look at how spaces can intrigue and lead people towards and into them. You'll also look at the possibilities for a market and gathering spaces. This will involve examining how a space can become a community of ideas, bringing in identity and fostering belonging, including strategies used within interior design, retail and community thinking.
The course will begin with an introductory lecture looking at what an interior space is. What do we see? How does it speak to our curiosity? Currently two sectors of the interior design industry, retail and community well-being, are endeavouring to discover new ways to bring people together across physical and digital platforms to people that want more authentic spatial experiences. We'll be looking at the possibilities of immersive environments where website and place are connecting on the High Street.
