Course - Overview
Exploring the power and impact of spatial design to understand and transform existing
spaces in a social, cultural, sustainable and contemporary setting is at the heart of the
Interior Design program at Pearl Academy. In a technologically transforming ecosystem
where design problems are multiple and challenges are complex, our program
encourages students to take creative risks. They design spaces that blend real-world
requirements with innovative solutions, to shape holistic spatial experiences.
International exposure, career mentoring by top industry experts and live projects are
designed to hone the skills and learnings of students. The program aims to develop the
ability to experiment, conceptualize, and detail functional and aesthetic spaces in which
the final design solutions may not be singular, but divergent in nature.
Fusing boundaries and crossing disciplines with a combination of problem-solving skills
and creativity are integral to this program and we create skilled professionals who are
adaptable and well equipped to navigate through a constantly evolving future.
The learning is project-based, with options to explore the functional, technical, and
planning aspects of Interior Architecture, along with the stylistic, aesthetic, and thematic
elements of Interior Design.
