2015 Interior Design Thesis Show

2015 Interior Design Thesis Show


[music plays throughout] [Kourtney] Today,
we are showcasing our thesis project, which is the accumulation
of four years. We do a final huge project
where we just celebrate together and reflect with one another,
as well as industry professionals. My project is actually an art therapy-
based cancer support centre. So I personally wanted to give back
in a special way. [Aaron]
My concept is Spectrum Unity. So it’s a creative
work and learn hub. So the idea is bringing
education and industry into one building to work together
to create new ideas. [Zaiba Mian]
The Interior Design program, we try and encourage our students
to engage conceptually but realizing though that the concepts
and the abstract ideas they explore have to be incorporated
into some sort of functional space. So we like to think
that the thesis project show this marriage
of conceptual thinking and programmatic requirements so that we’re training them to think,
design thinking, but we’re also training them to go
and work, uh, with real programs with real clients
in the workplace. [Yoel Berznoger] There’ve been a lot
of really successful graduates from the program. An- and being someone
that works with the design community on a day to day basis, I see, I see Humber grads and alum
all over the place in the industry. So it’s, uh,
it’s definitely known for… for producing some really great,
talented designers. [Aaron] I actually have a interview
in two weeks in, uh, Seattle for a firm, so I’m looking forward to that. [Kourtney] I actually just got hired
as a junior designer at Straticom,
downtown Toronto. [Shalaka] Humber is, um,
a school that’s so diverse. Um, and the kind of approach
Humber has, for not just our program,
but for every other program, is so different to other schools. You know,
everything is so hands on, and the teachers are so helpful, and I’m just, I’m- it feels great to be done,
but I’m also sad. Like, I’m s-
Humber was like my home. [Zaiba]
I taught this group in first year, and now, to see how far they’ve come
in fourth year, it’s really a, a great feeling. They really matured as designers
and as people. So I feel very proud. [music fades out]
