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.
