Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY, US, Bachelors, Interior Design

The interior design program is an architecturally oriented program with emphasis on spatial design as well as surface embellishment. All aspects of space—scale, proportion, configuration, and light source, as well as textures, materials, and color—are studied in relation to their effect on the human spirit. Students begin their interior design studies in the sophomore year, working in a stimulating studio setting where the learning is collective, cooperative, and competitive. Students work closely in small groups with their professor on projects that develop in size and complexity through the six semesters of design studio. The senior year culminates with a thesis project; students develop a body of research on a particular issue of the interior in the fall which they then develop as a design project in the spring.
