*A written report must accompany these options.

Recent Extended Projects have focused on the following areas:

•What factors have influenced the development of interior design?

•What is the relationship between class and fashion?

•How should we commemorate the Holocaust?

What your question will be is entirely up to you, but you will be supported by a tutor who will advise you on how to turn yourinitial idea into a viable project.
