Introduction

The BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design degree at Lincoln takes a multidisciplinary approach that positions the subject between the academically rigorous profession of architecture and the fast-paced world of contemporary visual culture and design.

On this degree, students will have the opportunity to develop practical design knowledge in specialist studios, learning from staff who are active both professionally and as researchers. Students will have the chance to learn about building technology while developing their own creative style. Studio learning is enhanced by a comprehensive programme of lectures and seminars, which aims to provide a thorough education in the social and historical context of architecture.

Opportunities to gain practical work experience or complete live work for real clients and building developments exist throughout the degree and there are opportunities for placements within a wide range of interior design and architectural practices. Placements can range from weeks to a full year placement, taken between level 2 and 3 of the course. There is also the opportunity on this course to study abroad as part of an exchange programme. Costs which may be incurred as part of a placement or study abroad opportunity are outlined in the Features tab.

A practical studio culture is in place at the University of Lincoln. As well as striving to provide a stimulating and creative environment, this way of working aims to prepare students for their future career in architecture and design. It also allows students the chance to take responsibility for how they develop a space, explore their own visual style, and to engage with other students and staff.

How You Study

Three-dimensional thinking is the focus of the first year of the degree and this is explored through a variety of media. Students will have the opportunity to learn how the design process works and begin to practise the skills of planning and modelling. The history and theory of architecture and design are examined, providing students with the chance to contextualise their practice with a solid theoretical understanding of the subject.

In the second year, students are introduced to the concept of social relationships and the responsibilities that face interior architects.

Students are expected to complete a comprehensive individual project in an area of personal interest in their third year, providing them with the chance to demonstrate the skills they have acquired as a designer. Professional practice is emphasised at this stage, aiming to ensure that students are ready to enter the industry when they graduate. There are also modules covering the administrative, legal and financial aspects of interior design practice.

Contact Hours and Independent Study

Contact hours may vary for each year of a degree. When engaging in a full-time degree students should, at the very least, expect to undertake a minimum of 37 hours of study each week during term time (including independent study) in addition to potentially undertaking assignments outside of term time. The composition and delivery for the course breaks down differently for each module and may include lectures, seminars, workshops, independent study, practicals, work placements, research and one-to-one learning.

University-level study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the material covered in lectures and seminars. As a general guide, for every hour in class students are expected to spend two - three hours in independent study.

Level 1

Design Primer (Core)

Exploratory in nature, this module focuses on essential 2D and 3D design skills and their inter-relationship in spatial composition.

The module will aim to introduce students to the study and practice of analytical and measured drawing, orthographics, model making and the concept of design language though the exploration of line, plane, space, form and human scale.

Design Process (Core)

Students have the opportunity to build on a range of essential design skills that can be applied to projects. The generation of design language is enhanced and developed by the introduction of spatial narrative supported by text, images and an introduction to the use of light, materials and construction.

Design Studies (Core)

Design Studies focuses on the integration of design history and theory into studio practice and research informed teaching. It offers both a historical overview and a thematic framework in which to study contemporary design, exhibition and architecture. It focuses on improving visual literacy and stylistic awareness as well as introducing the social and contextual factors that have determined design production through history.

Interior (Core)

Students can focus on applying basic 2D and 3D skills to the design of a small interior environment. Projects will be based within an existing building and students can explore integrative strategies essential to successful design.

Level 2

Design and Society (Core)

This module introduces theories about interior, architectural and urban space. The course recognises that the role of the designer includes not only the considerations of the formal qualities of the designed object or environment in relation to its immediate audience but also encompasses a broader set of responsibilities to society as a whole.

Design and Society option B (Option)

This module introduces theories about interior, architectural and urban space. The course recognises that the role of the designer includes not only the considerations of the formal qualities of the designed object or environment in relation to its immediate audience but also encompasses a broader set of responsibilities to society as a whole.

Insertion (Option)

Insertion and Intervention are conceived as key themes which open a significant debate within Interior Design.

Interior Designers often have to respond to the parallel, yet divergent, disciplines of designing temporary/transient spaces and spaces of longevity. One discipline, that of insertion, is concerned with the transient space, often existing only for a time and contextually dependent on notions of trend. By contrast, intervention is concerned with designing spaces of longevity and permanence. Spaces of intervention are often legitimated through their relationship to site, context, community, sustainability and function.

Studio 1: Space & Form (Core)

The aim of this module is to develop and enhance the common design skills and practice based processes explored in year one. A series of fundamental design skills; namely those of problem solving through drawing, making and realisation, are married to an analysis of function, site, context and contemporary spatial theory.

Studio 2 : Insertion & Intervention (Core)

Insertion and Intervention are conceived as key themes which open a significant debate within Interior Design.

Interior Designers often have to respond to the parallel, yet divergent, disciplines of designing temporary/transient spaces and spaces of longevity. One discipline, that of insertion, is concerned with the transient space, often existing only for a time and contextually dependent on notions of trend. By contrast, intervention is concerned with designing spaces of longevity and permanence. Spaces of intervention are often legitimated through their relationship to site, context, community, sustainability and function.

Studio 3: Definition & Direction (Option)

The broad aim of this module is concerned with the consolidation and honing of student’s interests and skills developed throughout the second year studio projects. In essence, the module permits the individual student the opportunity to develop one of their prior design responses to a high level of detail and specificity.

Study Period Abroad - Interior Architecture and Design (Option)

This module provides an opportunity for BA Hons Interior Architecture and Design students to spend a semester at second level studying at one of the University’s partner institutions, developing academically and personally. During the semester abroad students undertake a course load at the partner institution of equivalent standard to that of one semester of the programme at Lincoln. Participation in study abroad also offers unique opportunities for personal student development in the wider sense, taking in cultural, sporting and social opportunities.

In order to participate, students are usually expected to have a good record of attendance and participation, and must attend an interview with studio tutors. A limited number of places will be available each year, and participation is at the discretion of the Module Co-ordinator and the Programme Leader.

Level 3

Architecture Research Projects (Core)

Students have the opportunity to demonstrate the management of two independent, self-managed research projects. They are expected to take full charge of their programme of study and become increasingly empowered to investigate, interrogate and challenge as they progress.

ID Major Project (Core)

The major project allows the student the opportunity to synthesize their experience and interests through the definition, negotiation and implementation of a self-directed programme of design investigation, research and development leading to the presentation of a major project proposal.

The project affords the opportunity to engage with ideas and issues which the students finds relevant to their own emerging interests as designers and is combined with the Research Projects and Technical Studies modules to form a comprehensive design project.

ID Option project (Core)

The module offers a number of options which will vary year on year. Students will be asked to reflect on their learning and direction, consider the projects on offer and propose a topic of study.

Project proposals may either be linked to the major project subject area, or completely independent of it. Suitable competitions and one off live projects will also be offered as they present themselves.

Interior Architecture and Design Professional Studies (Core)

This module combines with the Research projects and Major Project modules to form a comprehensive design project and affords the opportunity to undertake a detailed exploration of selected technical issues pertinent to the subject area.

The module also introduces the main administrative, legal and financial aspects of Interior Design practice, together with the professional responsibilities of the practicing designer.
