the first-ever exhibition of its kind, the Interior Design program, located on
GW’s Mount Vernon Campus, presents graduate projects from FA 292, the
culminating studio class where the students synthesize their education pursuing
a thesis project of interest to them.
Each student is teamed with and mentored by a professional interior
designer throughout the project, providing students with professional feedback
on their work. A public
presentation of the graduate thesis projects took place on Monday, December 9,
2002, in the Eckles Library Auditorium.
students in the exhibition are Eduardo Cabrer, Nan Knisley, Angeles Mendoza,
Rachel Strutt and Tere Tomlinson.
The projects ranged from interior designs for breezy Caribbean luxury
suites in Puerto Rico and an adaptive re-use project in an old mill dating to
the 19th century outside of Baltimore (envisioned as an historic inn
and wine bar) to a new look for the staff cafeteria at the National Air and
Space Museum in Washington, D.C., with a color scheme inspired by pictures from
space of a nebula.
