The Designed Environments course focuses on the fields of architecture, interior design, urban design, landscape and sustainable building design. Students learn about 3D spatial design and apply problem solving skills in making appropriate design solutions to create attractive and functional spaces such as playgrounds, buildings and galleries. This course considers sustainability, aesthetics, human interaction, ergonomics, the ethical use of space and functionality.
Designed Environments forms a pathway for further study in areas such as building design, civil engineering, and architecture, interior design, set design and landscape design, concepts design and furniture design.
Units from Design and Graphics, Design and Textiles, Designed Environments and Engineering can be combined to make a Design and Technology minor, major, major minor or double major.
