Abstract

To avoid misconception of design language use in a classroom/studio, a learning tool is needed to help create a uniform design vocabulary of class/studio materials given by an instructor to students in the teaching and learning environment. There is one major issue to consider: People in the interior design discipline are tend to misunderstand the real value of models, thinking of them primarily in terms of final design prototype or scale representations of the name. This thesis will discuss three main components: 1) communication, 2) model making uses in interior design education, and 3) the invention of a learning tool. Communication is further divided into three parts: 1) general and public, 2) teaching and learning, and 3) interior design education.
