A Forum Of Ideas
During the Spring 2016 semester, graduate and undergraduate VCU interior design students took their studies beyond the studio and into the university’s most high-profile construction project, the Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA) at the Markel Center. In this collaboration among ICA staff, VCU School of the Arts Interior Design faculty and BCWH Architecture colleagues (the ICA’s architect), the students examined design challenges presented by the ICA’s forum, a space defined by a lofty ceiling, curved wall, glass facade and a sweeping grand staircase. This presentation reveals the students’ process through sketches and watercolors, study models, furniture and fixture selections, and recorded interviews.
