Dr. Carol Bentel, FAIA, ASID, IIDA, Chair of the Interior Design Department at the School of Visual Arts in NYC:

“Our students are the future designers of the built environment.  They work hand in hand with architects, engineers and builders.  Here we are in New York City, where buildings and interior space are abundant.  What better city to study and shape the places where we live, work and play?"

Mr. Stevens is looking forward to addressing the college students and future design professionals.  The Professional Practice course explores the nature of the client-designer relationship with special attention to providing marketable skills that clients are interested in procuring. Mutual expectations are identified, along with developing a working knowledge of standard forms of agreement. It covers the resources necessary to provide services, such as office organization; managing people, time and money, and recognizing social styles of interaction. Students prepare and present proposals for interior design services to guest critics. The course emphasizes the importance of communication through comprehensive content, compelling graphics and oral presentation.
