Design Discovery 2016 - Day 2: Instant Environment Construction
After sketching initial designs on Day 1, the students now apply their knowledge to build their creations. These “Instant Environments” are made from canvas, twine (hemp and nylon), and locally harvested bamboo.
What is involved in the professions of Architecture and Interior Design? What do design students study while in college? How can a person best prepare for an education in these fields? Many people who think about architecture or interior design have these or similar questions that should be answered before they make a decision about their career. Although we are all affected daily by the built environment, design education and the professions of architecture and interior design are often not fully understood by prospective students.
The College of Architecture Art + Design (CAAD) at Mississippi State University is offering an eight-day summer workshop that is intended to answer many of the questions about architecture and interior design as a field of study and as a profession. The major goal of the workshop is to simulate the information, skill and the intensity required for a design education, while providing a clear insight into the practice. With this experience it will be possible for the participants to make an informed career decision about architecture and its related disciplines.
