Interior An overview of TDV Interior Design course
Spaces have a lot of impact on the physical, psychological, cognitive and behavioral aspects of the end users. The spatial qualities define and determine how we feel, think and act in a certain setting. Hence it is very important understand and appreciate the role of interior design in shaping our home, offices, institutions and public buildings.
The Interior Design programme at TDV surpasses traditional approach to interior design that is restricted to only decoration or aesthetic embellishments to encompass a more effective approach that relies on the transformative power of design interventions in making a difference in the built environment. The programme takes the students through a sensitizing journey of making them aware of the context within which they operate as interior designers, and then equips them with the necessary tools to realize their vision.
This programme trains students to think and act cohesively to be able to extend their design skills to interior spaces, exhibitions, pavilions, art installations and many more.
