FORT WAYNE, Ind.—How is designing a building for use as a hospital different from designing one for use as a church, restaurant, or assisted living facility? The Third Annual Interior Design Senior Exhibition will allow viewers to discover those differences from Friday April 26, through Sunday, May 19, 2013, in the Visual Arts Gallery located in the lobby of the Visual Arts Building. An opening night reception will be held in the gallery from 6 to 8 p.m., Friday, April 26.

Associate Professor of Interior Design Suining Ding says the annual event showcases the students’ work in senior studio courses. “Students have been working hard through the journey of their final year. The senior project is year-long as well as ‘real world,’ beginning with interviewing the client. In the exhibition, 3D digital models and design concepts are presented through a cohesive integration of graphics and written narratives that tell the stories of their designs,” said Ding.

This year’s projects include designs for hospitals, assisted living facilities, education, churches, restaurants, and apartments. The exhibition gives the students, their families and friends, and their professors, to celebrate their achievements.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.

For more information, contact Ding at 260-481-6008 or dings@ipfw.edu.
