BA(Hons) Interior Architecture

About the course

Interior Architecture at Brighton (BAIA) is in its 26th year, the longest standing Interior Architecture course in the UK. Our undergraduate degree comprises a three-year exploration into the nature of interior space with respect to its physical and conceptual territories.

The exhibited works showcase a range of creative practices explored through social, cultural and political narratives, posing questions about the changing nature of spatial design. Through experimental realism we explore the implications of recent pasts, alternative nows and near-futures that inform the way we think about space, experience and behaviour.

At Brighton our students look to the future for redemption and progress; real people and real problems drive us – we do not accept current situation(s) as a given - we are radical and responsible – we are experimental and disciplined. Our specialty at Brighton is the cultivation in each student, of his or her spatial intelligence. We believe this is an intelligence that every person carries with them, uniquely developed as a result of their experience of space.

Our graduates are equipped with the vision and skill to develop the future of the interior. Building upon their own interests this year their work questions the;

  • Spatial relationship between humanity and gratification
  • Changing modes of living
  • Manifestation of political uncertainty into temporary and transitional architecture and spaces
  • Future of the high street
