To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.
Students will apply the knowledge, concepts, skills and techniques learned in all previous courses to generate a creative solution to a design project that supports human behavior within the interior environment. This self-directed course develops a project at a conceptual level. Through comprehensive research students will provide documentation, and critical analysis to formulate conceptual solutions that demonstrate a thorough understanding of the design process. The design solution will provide accessibility, functionality, sustainability, design aesthetics and code compliancy throughout. Individual research through various media, exploration of concepts and analysis will provide the base for their conceptual designs.
Mandatory Prerequisites: All INTD 3000 and 4000 courses except: INTD 3370 Design History 2, INTD 4110 Human and Environmental Factors, INTD 4310 Interior Construction and Renovation.
