Inscape Open Days are approaching – 18th and 19th May 2018 – and all campuses (Pretoria, Cape Town, Midrand and Durban) are getting ready to show prospective students and parents what makes this organisation stand out!
Students in the Inscape – Built Environment faculty work on a large variety of projects, many of which require them to integrate with students from other disciplines and specializations taught at Inscape. This helps expand their learning beyond the built environment to incorporate graphics, interaction, audiovisual, ideation, and even some fashion design. Inscape believes that a key factor in preparing a student to enter the workforce is that they have a grasp on trends within interior and environmental design, and also know how these relate to the design world as a whole.
Understanding trends, knowing about the latest products and inventions, and being able to solve design problems – all play a vital role and greatly contribute to an individual’s ability to solve a client’s project. Not to mention making them more valuable to future employers.
Students read and research the latest building projects that have been completed around the world, seeing if there are any technologies, inventions and design ideas that are trending. They research and are informed about the construction happening in their local region, as well as attend trade shows.
One of the specializations at Inscape is ‘Environmental Design.’ Although our human desire for healthy living is not new, sustainable ideas and trends are constantly evolving, moving the built environment toward a more ‘green’ future. It is important for students to be aware of the latest technology, as well as current concepts being developed by the industry and how these have been implemented and used by fellow architects and designers.
These days, simply knowing that there are systems like solar energy, rainwater collection or wind power are not enough. Knowing how to implement these, and the importance of understanding how such systems can be fully integrated into the design itself, are becoming ever more vital for future design careers.
Interested in a career in design and the built environment? Join the Inscape team for an Open Day at any of their campuses to learn more. Don’t miss out on 18th and 19th May 2018 in Pretoria, Cape Town, Midrand and Durban.
