Design Principles (HT101) marks the threshold into design thinking for all BAC undergraduates. Students explore the generative ideas that are at the heart of the design process through lectures, in-class activities, and discussions, and interconnected reading, writing, and drawing exercises. The course considers the work of important interior designers, architects, landscape architects, and designers from history and contemporary practice. Students understand work ethic necessary to be a designer and the importance of visual thinking in a design office. Ideas presented in Design Principles run parallel to the "A" level foundation studios. All work for the course is presented in a designated notebook.
