The interior workshop course includes individual practical work done by students on an interior design project. The topic is spaces for different purposes within existing buildings in the centre and central area of Zagreb. Locations significant to the formation of visual experience for pedestrians in the city centre are selected. These include spaces located in buildings of significant architectural features, often registered in the register of protected cultural monuments and those places that are in contact with public spaces. The topics change every academic year. Students choose an area among several offered and, in consultation with their principal, propose or accept contents considered as matching the character of the site. After researching the context and the formal characteristics of the building and an analysis programme, the interior project is drafted to scale. Formal intervention along peripheral pedestrian streets and squares connected with facades and shops are also possible.
