This programme identifies the role of Interior architecture as a specialist discipline of its own with a clear body of knowledge. It is an architecturally oriented programme with emphasis on spatial design as well as embellishments. The programme aligns with the core values of SSAA with the focus on critical thinking, aesthetics, sustainability and heritage.
The application process additionally includes:
The M. Arch (IA) programme is a minimum duration of two academic years (4 semesters) approximately 16working weeks each. (Structure matrix attached below.)
Interior architects are spreading their expertise to public living spaces in the larger urban realm. They are trained to pay attention to transitional spaces between elements in a city, on non-built areas such as squares, streets, parks, roundabouts and other undefined urban voids, taking into consideration both the container (built form) and the content (temporary uses).
With this design approach, we can begin to further ask what form might the urban landscape take when shaped by the interior. And with an adoption of this approach, we might have more coherence between the inside and the outside, thus improving the urban conditions of our cities.
Mou Signed Between IIID And SSAA | Feb 2019
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for academic collaboration was signed between Institute of Indian Interiors Designer (IIID) and SSAA, Ansal University, on 8th February 2019. As part of the terms of the collaboration IIID DRC will organise programmes inviting Guest speakers from allied subjects of Design for informal interactions about professional practice and their personal growth experiences, workshops, seminars etc.
In this workshop, we try to understand Gurgaon as a lived experience. We try to bring out the uniqueness of its various environments by translating the ‘urbanity’ of the experience into controlled ‘rooms’. By doing this, we continuously question the nature of ‘interiority’ and ‘urbanity’ and the boundaries and labels that separate.
