  • Identify how to select materials and finishes to "cross-pollinate" the interior and exterior designs while addressing safety hazards.
  • Identify the three primary outdoor areas, and how to reduce hazards, improve barrier free design outdoors, and understand how the six principles for good interior design can be applied to exterior design.
  • Recognize nine areas of interior design that can be integrated into outdoor living spaces safely, accessibly, and functionally.
  • Identify two major safety hazards unique to outdoor design and the importance of addressing them as integral components of the overall design.
