Spatial Design Studio - (30 Credits)
The module introduces the essential skills needed for spatial designers to successfully learn in Higher Education. Elements and techniques of visual communication, both hand drawn and digital approaches are taught, and include 2D and 3D visualisations. The module appraises spatial theory and applies this thinking throughout to the function, aesthetics and design intention within particular landscapes and their contexts. The module uses a combination of traditional and digital art and design practices and model making techniques as tools to analyse existing space and as methods to explore 3-dimensional and spatial design. Off-site visits and the College's extensive campus are explored to consider real space and time to support studio based learning.
