Environmental Design

Environmental Design focuses on the total spatial experience—from the first moment of encounter to the last moment of interaction.

We pursue a global sense of industry-driven design that investigates every aspect of where and how people live, work and play. Our students look beyond the single object, moment or place. They seek to make an impact designing projects ranging from branded retail, theme-driven dining to new hospitality, exhibition and residential design. Our emphasis on spatial experiences produces leaders in the fields of furniture, lighting and interior component design. Our students gain global awareness through Designmatters social impact projects, Transdisciplinary Studio courses, international study abroad programs and Sponsored Projects classes with industry-leading companies and organizations. All of which amounts to a rich and diverse educational experience for students aspiring to be influential and impactful spatial designers.
