However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
After completing the course, the student:
- Understands the interaction of space and services.
- Has a critical overview on the potential of service design in the context of interior architecture.
- Commands basic service design methods and is able to apply them in interior architecture.

CONTENT, ASSESSMENT AND WORKLOAD
The course provides an introduction to service design methods in the context of spatial design and interior architecture. We study the reciprocal relationship between space and services, learn basic service design methods and rehearse the application of the methods in interior architecture. The course consist of two elements: theory and method part that builds the knowledge base through lectures, reading tasks and weekly assignments, and design part where the methods are applied into a concept level design project. The course is suitable to master's students from any area of design or architecture.
Assessment Methods and Criteria
The theory and method part comprises lectures, reading tasks and weekly assignments done individually or in groups. The design part consists of a spatial and service design project done in groups with tutoring meetings and a final presentation. Passing the course requires 80% attendance and submission of all assignments. Assessment is based on the assignments and the quality of the design project.
135 h: contact teaching 30 h, independent work 105 h.
Announced in the beginning of the course.
