did you already see their websites? Domus is supposed to be the most popular of them. Istituto Marangoni's quite popular too, I think. I know they're supposed to be good in fashion design, but I don't know too much about the interior design. I think the Savannah College of Art & Design in the US is good.

There is Kingston University

About Architecture / Interior Design Schools
Alright, so I've really become interested in architectural design
and interior design. I really wanted to become a fashion designer,
but that's a pretty unstable field to get out into, so I've settled
on architecture/interior design. I'm a junior in high school and I need
to pick out some colleges to apply to. However, there's my dilemma.
I know of some famous colleges, but I simply cannot afford a 30K
tuition per semester.

Does anyone here know of any good colleges/universities (preferably
in Illinois or the east coast) that have arch/i.d.? Or have you attended
any and can give me advice for which are good ones?

Thanks in advance. <3

I know that my school (Columbia College in Chicago) offers a BFA in Interior Architecture. I'm not sure exactly what that is but I'm told that a lot of girls go into thinking that it's interior design and come out disappointed.

Just wondering... what made you think that it's unstable?
Is it any more unstable than being an architect or interior designer?

Ah, thank you for that info on the Columbia College at Chicago. I was thinking of visiting it this summer.


Gius-
Well, I know several fashion designers that have spent their entire lives working in the field and have found it very hard to break through and are often financially unstable. Then there are several other few that are doing quite well. That, and my parents strongly oppose me going into fashion design without an interior design and/or architecture degree first. Very stupid indeed.
Careers in architecture seem to be much more stable. That and my mother is acquainted with a very big architect in NYC through an old professor of hers, so I might have some future in his company.

I definitely recommend paying a visit to Columbia! The school isn't for everyone (rigorous first year to weed out the weaklings), so like half the freshmen class ends up dropping out, and yeah, the resources you get being in Chicago.

Ah, that sounds like it'd be a fun first year. Haha. Is it very difficult? I'm not one to quit easily, but if I end up going there, I don't want to whine to my parents that it's too hard or then they'd do that whole "Told you you should stay in the state." type deal that parents do.

What other areas of study are there at Columbia?
