UK College of Design Announces School of Interiors
July 2, 2013 |
The University of Kentucky School of Interior Design, located within the UK College of Design, is rebranding as the UK School of Interiors: Planning/Strategy/Design. The change was officially approved at the university's most recent Board of Trustees meeting.
The name change reflects the dynamic nature of interior planning, and communicates the expertise of the professional degree. The field of study is no longer limited to the concept of interior design, but encompasses community outreach, sustainability, and environmental and workplace performance.
"The study of interiors will change greatly in the face of issues affecting the building arts," said Director of the School of Interiors Patrick Lee Lucas. "I see a course of study, when allied with other disciplines, will engage in a more holistic consideration of the human experience in spaces."
