The BA (Hons) Interior Design 3rd year Graduates of 20082009 exemplify a diverse but integrated approach to the delivery of Interior Design education at Leeds College of Art, which examines and uestions the accepted boundaries and thresholds between the interior and the exterior in the Built Environment. It is based on a Bauhaus vision of collaborative discourse, research and individual conceptualisation.

This is an internationally recognised and well established course, highly regarded by the design community. The students have shown a maturity in rising above the limiting conventions of mainstream professional practice, in many cases acknowledging and responding positively to the Sustainability agenda by either specifying environmentally friendly materials and products, or incorporating renewable energy systems into their concepts. Using all their creative skills and technical knowledge in their own choice of final major projects, they have demonstrated sensitivity for design solutions with appropriateness and substance. They have rejected the contemporary superficial and stylistic notions of the fashion-led media, in favour of more holistic approaches to how places feel, smell, sound, breathe and evolve, in order to provide healthy and ergonomically functional spatial configurations for the end users and occupants.

Finally I have been extremely impressed with all the students’ enthusiasm for their studies, and I congratulate

This academic year has been my first year as new Course Leader, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank in particular our administrator Sue Lonergan for helping to guide me through all the new processes and management systems. Also thanks to my fellow course tutors for their support and encouragement – Pat Oliver, Emma Sharman, Niall O’Leary, my predecessor Graham Savage, not forgetting other colleagues Bridget March and Michael Corker.
