On Friday the 19th of March, selected students travelled to Edinburgh’s Napier University for an interior design conference. There was a range of students present: from Glasgow School of Art, Dundee College of Art and Design, Edinburgh College of Art and Napier University.
Here each university spoke for an hour about their interior design course and what they have been doing recently from re-modelling hotel rooms to constructing cantinas. The courses all seemed to be the same until the third year students at Dundee College of Art and Design stood up and spoke about the GIDE Project. This is where a group of university students all over Europe get the same brief, then eight weeks later display their presentation and take part in a workshop, lasting four days. This year it was held in Switzerland. Following that were students from Napier University studying Interior Architecture.
After each presentation there was an open discussion about each course. I found it overall a very interesting day, where I learnt that our course is very up to date and modern. As well as seeing what the other interior students do and how I could improve my work.
