Studying any specialisation within the Built Environment at Inscape, you will cover: Technical Drawing, Design Theory, Construction Technology, Green and Sustainable Design, Project Management and Business Classes, as well as many other topics. These are the fundamentals you need, in order to be productive and successful in the Built Environment. There is, however, one defining factor that differentiates the Interior Design and Environmental Design - the theme of your portfolio. The projects you design and assignments you complete during your studies at Inscape will look different depending on this choice. In Environmental Design, your focus is ‘green.’ The projects and spaces you design will focus primarily on sustainable factors, on your choice of materials, as well as how environmental factors influence your decisions. You will become an expert at all things ‘green.’ After graduation, your professional affiliation and relationships will be with Green Design professionals in the built environment.
In Interior Design, your focus is on creating ideal interior space that not only serve their function well but also have the aesthetic appeal your client desires. You will learn about interior branding, and about the many new technologies and materials being used in the industry, providing both complex and interesting situations. After graduation, your professional affiliation and relationships will be with Interior Design professionals. The good news is that no matter whether you decide to focus on Interior Design or Environmental Design, your passion as a creative will direct your career. Any good Interior Designer would always incorporate green design principles, and a strong Environmental Designer would always design to incorporate both aesthetic and unique interior design solutions. Inscape paths the way for both, no matter which you decide on.
