Course Description

In this course students will develop skills in digital presentation and documentation for 3D visualisation of a variety of interior spaces. By selecting and applying a range of digital software to your design and documentation you will produce industry - ready proposals which include lighting, materials and furnishing presentations.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

In this course you will develop the following program outcomes:

  • Communicate your ideas and designs through a broad range of technology and presentation techniques to a range of stakeholders including clients and relevant industry practitioners.
  • Implement broad knowledge and skills of space planning, construction and fit out to select and specify materials, furnishings, colour and lighting for sustainable interior solutions.


Upon successful completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Select and apply appropriate software for high resolution project presentations.
  • Develop documentation based on a combination of virtual 3D models to generate plans, perspectives, materials and lighting applications
  • Apply hand and digital manipulation skills to post- production alterations.


Overview of Learning Activities

Learning activities will include supervised project work, demonstrations, audio visual presentations, independent research and project work.


Overview of Learning Resources

Audio visual presentations, library references, architectural and interior design websites, interface & activity via myRMIT learning and support material, including relevant Australian Standards


Overview of Assessment

You will be assessed on how well you meet the course learning outcomes and on your development against the program learning outcomes.

Assessment may include a range of activities such as in- class exercises, peer feedback, self-reflection and individual / group projects, assessed through a variety of media.

Feedback will be given on all assessment tasks.

Assessment tasks in this course are either formative or summative. Formative tasks provide the basis for ongoing feedback and can be considered essential building blocks for the more substantial summative assessment tasks. Summative assessment tasks in this course are graded.

Feedback throughout the course may be written, verbal or a combination of both.
