Adam Roland, MA

Adam is from Tampa, FL with a Master of Arts in Interior Design from Savannah College of Art + Design and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design from Ringling College of Art and Design. He holds a certification through the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) and is licensed to practice commercial interior design within the state of Florida.

Adam specializes in office, medical, retail, government, and hospitality interior design projects. His teaching philosophy is to share meaningful design education, instruction, and practice. His goal is to contribute as a mentor to future practitioners. In the classroom, he emphasizes design precedent, process, collaboration, and personal reflection.

He shares that his role as a design educator is constantly evolving. Through a reflective process, he is able to establish and refine his teaching philosophy. As he reflects on the value of design, Adam encourages students to model the same behavior. Design education has the power to change how we think, see the world, and live our lives; it elevates who we are. When Adam isn’t teaching, you can find him traveling, he loves being immersed in new locations, cultures, and ways of life.
