In 85 years, our program has gone through many changes. Launched in 1931, the interior design program joined the School of Architecture in 2009 to emphasize its commitment to space and the human experience. The name changed from Interior Design to Interior Design as another way to strengthen our view of the program as a holistic study of the built environment, addressing all scales and senses. Most recently, we launched a Master of Interior Design program creating a stronger focus on the theoretical and experimental side of our profession.
One ideal that has remained constant in the Interior Design program is our commitment to inclusiveness. We not only embrace the diversity of ideas and ideals, but also the incredible range of participants in the program, including students, faculty, and staff. We are proud to see ourselves as a polychromatic school which includes and elevates all backgrounds. Our graduating class of 2017 exemplifies and celebrates our passion for individual thinkers and creators.
Join us on April 7-8 for the Unmentionables Symposium, an inaugural two-day event hosted by the Department of Interior Architecture and held at Helms Design Center in Culver City.
Coinciding with the 85th anniversary of Woodbury’s Interior Architecture program, the event highlights critical latent issues within the discipline today.
Unmentionables is aimed at exploring new narratives for interior architecture and establishing a precedent for welcoming previously unmentioned ideas in spatial practice and theory. The symposium will serve as a provocation for marginalia, taboos, illicit ideas, and undertheorized issues such as critical interiority and physical and virtual constructed environments.
Join us for the End-of-Year Showcase featuring student work from the class of 2017.
