The three pillars of sustainability, social, environmental and economic developments, are global trends in education. The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic is a critical indication of nature's resistance. Developing a sustainable interior design learning approach is not a prerequisite for a sustainable education perspective but may bring solutions to environmental concerns. Therefore, developing a curriculum for teaching green interior design is vital for SID. This study proposes a curriculum framework for teaching sustainable interior design from theory to practice based on sustainability theory and green interior rating standards. Students must consider Covid-19 based on WHO and LEED green rating standards for their design project. A study was conducted to examine the learning processes and outcomes of students. This study offers a new perspective on the development of sustainable interior design in education.


Key words: Sustainable interior design, Covid-19 era, sustainable design education, case study.
