공간보기공간풀기 (Creating and Analyzing Spaces)

As a freshmen course, this class deals with general and holistic fundamentals about the variety of interior architecture & built environments for understanding and creating spaces. This course aims to encourage freshmen students growing multidisciplinary perspectives, theories and practical knowledge necessary to design spaces, and to promote creative & analytic approaches for further works.

Course Goals:
– Organizing your thoughts for space
– Making a close observation of the spatial environment we live in
– Understanding what space is and how it is organized
– Widening our view of the spatial environment we are experiencing
– Empowering the ability of analyzing the spaces
– Understanding the creative design process
– Experiencing the actual construction process
– Forming philosophical grounds to create a good space.

The lecture is an introductory lecture for learning residential environment and interior architecture and provides the foundation for faithfully carrying out the next four years.

기초설계제도 (Interior Drafting and Graphics)

This course is a drafting and design basic course to teach two-dimensional drawing for interior design. Students will also learn about three-dimensional drawing. Students will learn how to draw floor plans, elevations, sections, and reflective ceiling plans.
Students will also learn how to draw specific design elements such as windows, doors, walls, floors, furniture, and patterns.
Hand and computer drawing skills will be taught.
Students will finish their hand drawing for the midterm and computer drawing for the final.

공간디스플레이와 코디네이션 (Interior Display & Coordination)

Interior display and coordination course contents deliver contemporary trends of interior design, display, and coordination and provide opportunities for students to propose a better design solution for existing display spaces. Students will learn design elements and principles for the display and coordination. Students will visit several designed spaces and analyze their design quality. For the final project, students will provide a better design solution for existing display spaces. Students will also learn how to satisfy the space users’needs and clients of the project.

연구방법론 (Research methods for Graduate Studies in Interior Architecture and Built Environment)

Research Methods in Interior Architecture and Built Environment course is designed to examine the procedures and principles involved with experimental, quasi-experimental, correlational, and other research. Problem formulation, literature review, measurement issues, sampling, research design, data analysis, and report writing using APA format will be addressed.

디자인 이슈와 사례 (Design Issues and Practices): 사회문제해결형 교과목

Course objectives are to make students be able to:
1. Demonstrate an awareness of contemporary interior design issues and professions.
2. Explore emerging and future design issues in interior design field, conduct individual case studies, and understand the contributions of interior design to contemporary society.

3. Specific issues are: 
· Sustainable Development and Design
· New urbanism and walkability, housing options, etc.
· Design for health
· Green healthcare design
· Aging-in-place
· Dual-income families and their spatial needs
· Intergenerational space design
· Secure by design
· Smart homes and technology
· One-person households and Single-Room Occupancy
· Space design for low-income people
· Universal design and accessibility for public buildings

4. Understand how to approach complex problems systematically and objectively.
5. Recognize when additional information may be beneficial and know how to seek it out from reliable and reputable sources. Students need to learn evidence-based design and how to apply scientific evidence to their design projects.
6. Clearly articulate opinions (in writing and orally) and defend them with supporting evidence.
7. Collaborate with others in developing and presenting a group position on an issue. Students need to collaboratively explore leading interior design projects on their issues and share the information with other students.
8. Build up students’ own statements for space-related issues and solutions and present long-term visions for solving space-based issues in our society.

실내환경과 행태론 (Behavioral theory for interior design)

This course delivers the content focusing on environment and behaviors.
This course adopts the major focuses addressed by a scholarly journal, Environment and Behavior.
Environment-behavioral research “examines relationships between human behavior and  the natural and built environment.” Research topics include perceptions, satisfactions, and experiences in certain environmental settings, environment behavioral theories, environmental outcomes from designers, planners, or others, research methods, and process that links environments including built and natural and behaviors that support human health and well-being.
 This course will introduce these topics to students, encourage them to discuss the issues, and seek for the solutions for providing better environments for space users. Mainly focusing on the environment-behavioral issues, students will be able to review relevant studies to their topic, develop a research framework and process, plan data collection methods, collect data, and analyze the data.
Students should also be able to present findings and make suggestions for future designers and researchers.

도시주거환경연구 (Study on Urban Housing Environment)

This course will encourage design students to learn about recent housing and community design trend and examples, and planning students to learn about related policies and programs. This course will also help students learn various contemporary issues related to housing and community.

Students will be able to:
1. Understand the principles of sustainable housing, new urbanism, and gated community related issues at a variety of scales and settings;
2. Critically examine and understand the challenges and opportunities to build, plan for, and direct contemporary housing.
3. Demonstrate an awareness of current housing and community design issues.
4. Explore research articles regarding contemporary housing and community design. Students need to understand current trend and future directions of housing design and planning based on the review of articles.
5. Understand how to approach complex problems systematically and objectively.
6. Apply the principles and theories from the course contents to real-world problem domains.
7. Develop individual student expertise on a topic related to class contents that will in turn enhance professional development and increase effectiveness in the work place after graduation.
8. Collaborate with others in developing and presenting a group position on an important issue for housing and community planning.


This course is offered for the graduate students in Interior Architecture and Built Environment to
help them to establish their research foundation through conducting in-depth literature reviews and
case studies.
The course will also invite professionals in our area and learn from them about the professional
development as interior architectural researchers.
