Undergraduate

The UNT Interior Design program is committed to the idea that interior designers have a responsibility to provide sustainable solutions that both improve the physical environment and protect the safety of the inhabitants. In addition to design fundamentals, interior designers need to be knowledgeable about:

  • Technical drawing and drafting
  • Computer-aided drawing and design
  • Information gathering and research
  • Materials, finishes and furniture selection
  • Presentation and communication
  • Interior construction
  • Lighting and building systems
  • Federal, state and local building codes and regulations

Check out this award-winning video prepared by the students at Radford University. The competition was sponsored by the Interior Design Educators Council (IDEC).

Interior Design Class of 2017: Border Crossings Project

Video here.The Border Crossings Project consisted of an international outreach where the UNT sophomore interior design team communicated with universities from all over the world (Dundee, Ljubljana, and Amsterdam). They created a sculpture with the other countries using a website created for correspondence and video chat sessions. The sculpture revolved around the concept of interconnectivity. Their last contribution was a reactionary video to the sculpture they created with the other countries, receiving inspiration from Eyes of the Skin by Juhani Pallasmaa. The Texas team wanted to convey the importance of tactile sense and auditory skills, and incorporated different languages to show how cultures can come together to create meaningful artwork. They used fire to demonstrate how evanescent visual products can be, hoping to convey how impressionable an emotional response can be.
