The second-year students in the University of Kentucky School of Interior Design Retail Studio will host an exhibition of their proposed designs next Friday, April 19 from 5-8pm at their site location, 126 Broadway in Lexington, KY.
Organized by College of Design instructors Lindsey Guinther and Helen Turner in coordination with Schrader Commercial Properties and LexPark, the exhibition will feature their proposals for a new retail space adjacent to Victorian Square. Students participating in the 2nd year retail design studio explored brand identity, surface articulations, site analyses and programming and have worked closely with owner/design director of Lexington’s Creative Retail Services, Clifford Goss. The exhibition will be a showcase of work developed over the course of a semester.
UK's School of Interior Design, in the College of Design, offers both a four-year undergraduate professional degree and a post-professional graduate degree. The foundation of the school is the studio experience, which is taken each semester and provides the framework for the integration of all program knowledge and technical skills in the design of interior environments. Through studio, classroom, and real-world assignments, interior design students learn to solve complex organizational problems associated with work, place, experience and performance. These professional skills prepare students to manage the aesthetic, technical and business aspects of interior design projects.
