This paper is about the interdisciplinary approach to the interior architecture studio education. The second year Interior Architecture and Environmental Design at the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design at the Izmir University of Economics, Izmir, Turkey, was given the task of designing a modular living unit for archaeology students. The brief expected the design of a living unit for students out of two- and three-dimensional modules. There were three aims of the project: first, the advantages of the process being interdisciplinary and collaborative working closely with the archaeology centre; second, the role of modularity introduced at the interior scale; and third, the structure of the semester enabling an understanding of the interior architecture process, delivered at the second year level. In the paper, the means by which the aims are fulfilled will be discussed with examples from students’ projects, and furthermore, directions for research are discussed with an emphasis on design thinking.

Keywords: Interior architecture education, design education, design process, design thinking, archaeology.
