As students, we spend most of our time designing: creating interesting spaces and atmospheres. However, sometimes we need to put things in practice so we can look at the general picture of a project and understand the process behind it.  

This course will simulate a real life spatial design project: receiving a job announcement from a potential client, presenting your design company and making an offer, creating a design concept to sell your idea, developing the project documentation (architectural or spatial plans, lightning criteria, furniture criteria, material plans, furniture plans with features, furniture) and a general budget.  The goal is to create a complete project folder that is ready for implementation.  The aim of the course is to get a better idea of what a spatial design project really is, learn to make smarter design decisions and better understand your profession.
