Design Discovery 2016 - Day 5: Cotton District Project | Representation in 2D
On Day 5, the students toured the Cotton District near the campus to get introduced into the idea’s of New Urbanism and how this affects the layout of building and public space. The students were tasked with documenting the building’s character, composition and proportion to re-assemble models of them back in Giles Hall.
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.
