During class, students are building furniture and sensory objects for children at the Children's TherAplay Foundation. The immersive learning course, led by Dr. Shireen Kanakri, associate professor of interior design, was a continuation from the previous semester when students helped to propose a new design for the entire building at Children’s TherAplay. In this phase of the project, students are designing furniture pieces, including a sensory wall, a cruising wall, a ramped bridge, and more.
