The Master Interior Architecture at HKU (HKU MIA) trains students to become interior architects who work creative, communicative and investigative within a dynamic/changing profession. HKU MIA has three pillars: human centered design, design research and design within a professional context.
We encourage students to take position in societal issues. Students are challenged to address these in their design process in close relation/collaboration with stakeholders and end-users. Students search for suitable and innovative design solutions; they examine, take a position and translate their ideas into convincing and feasible spatial designs.Students are trained to develop their own design tools, methodology and artistic-technical skills as part of a lifelong learning strategy.
