In a highly competitive economy where the success of a building such as a stadium, restaurant, retail boutique, museum or theater rests as much on the user s experience as it does on a building s performance, cost or look, the successful design of interior environments is critical. Traditional approaches in interior design and interior architecture lack the specialized and technology-based focus on individual experience that an environmental design degree path offers through the special fusion of course work in architecture, interior design and interaction design.
