Building on prior learning and professional practice experience, this module aims to reinforce the use of materials and technologies for the architectural construction and operation of interiors. You will critically review concepts of design thinking and the processes and practice of brief-led design and embed environmental and performance issues in the architectural construction and use of interiors. You will be able to strengthen your contextual and critical basis of design and its analysis and interpretation as well as synthesise the communication and representation of architectural interiors in a range of media. This module also aims to consolidate your personal approaches to reflective and professional design practice.

Interior Architecture and Interior Design students at Middlesex work on cross-disciplinary live projects which see them explore their creativity in exciting ways. A recent collaboration saw second year students work with Edgar Davey, visiting lecturer in graphic design and Middlesex alum, on an installation where Davey's mind blowing graphics were projected onto a sculptural form designed by the students.
Originally exhibited at the Red Gallery in London's Shoreditch, The Void has since been showcased at Middlesex's 2015 art and design degree show and at the Interior Educators exhibition at London's Truman Brewery.
Jonathan has been both a professional Interior Designer and design educator for over twenty years. His specialisms include the design of hotels, spa’s and leisure spaces, restaurant design, exclusive residential design, and retail and exhibition design. He also worked on the design of a private island in the Caribbean. A keen advocate of contemporary visualising techniques which utilise graphical software, he also maintains a strong connection with hand drawing and painting, being an ardent Urbansketcher and life drawing. In 2015, Jon published a collection of short stories creating new myths for an old village in Kent and illustrated each of the fifty-five fairy tales with linocut black and white illustrations.
