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="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/ns/ns9ku3bqht1io2aw.jpg"></p><p>&ldquo;Students in our department are engaged in a rich and expansive discipline focusing on the reuse and transformation of existing str...</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/149983982/free-school-of-architecture-update-open-for-applications-in-january-2017 Free School of Architecture update: open for applications in January 2017 Alexander Walter 2016-12-27T21:07:00-05:00 >2016-12-28T13:51:46-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/f3/f3rrt00uii6cbhbt.jpg" width="650" height="432" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Earlier this year, architect Peter Zellner <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/149971310/peter-zellner-to-launch-the-free-school-of-architecture-a-tuition-free-experimental-architecture-school" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">announced</a> his plans of a new educational institution dubbed the Free School of Architecture.
