Advanced design studios focused on adaptive reuse are central to both the undergraduate and graduate programs. And unlike the fields of interior design and decoration, interior architecture looks less at the application of surface materials than at understanding the design of buildings from the inside out.</p><p>In the studio, students use digital and manual means to research and recommend design alterations and renovations that give existing buildings new life. Studios focus on a wide range of approaches, from domestic to retail design to theater/production design to issues of preservation and conservation.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src=""></p><p><em>Image: Heekyung Kim, Space for Water, MDes 2014</em></p><p>&ldquo;Students in our department are engaged in a rich and expansive discipline focusing...</p> Get Lectured: RISD, Spring '14 Justine Testado 2014-03-20T13:46:00-04:00 >2014-03-20T16:52:51-04:00 <img src="" width="514" height="794" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><strong><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Archinect's Architecture School Lecture Guide for Winter/Spring 2014</a></strong><br><br>Archinect's <em>Get Lectured</em> is up and running again for the Winter/Spring '14 term!
