Overview

Interior architects/designers create the specific character of spaces for human use and enjoyment. While the architect typically focuses on the building form and external profiles, relationships between buildings and landscape, the interior architect/designer's focus are primarily on the interior spaces of buildings. 

Program Overview

Working with scales that range from that of the object (furniture and light fixtures) to that of the complex whole (ordering systems and spatial sequence) the interior architect requires the knowledge of experiential, the tectonic, the technical, and the theoretical.

Because of the commonalities between the disciplines of architecture and interior architecture, students in the interior architecture program share similar professional core courses with students in architecture during the first two years of study.

As societies continue to re-examine their stock of existing buildings, the skills of interior architects/designers become increasingly important to clients seeking building conservation, preservation, and adaptive re-use.

Students in the Interior Architecture and Design program at Marywood University must understand the important role of materials, colors, textures, and light in the creation of interior spaces that respond to physical, social, psychological and cultural needs of building users.
