Aims and outcomes
Graduates are destined to work in the different fields of spatial design, from urban to furniture design. Their working methods complement those of other environment designers. In the case of cityscape and landscape, spatial designers work on details, materials, atmospheres and lighting rather than on global issues. In the case of architecture, they focus on interior design and ways of life rather than on infrastructures. They apply furniture design to precise places rather than follow the rules of mass production.
Professional partners frequently take part in the course. Exercises give students the opportunity to include sociology, ethics, culture, economics etc. in their thinking process. They are structured according to the different stages of the design process.
They enable students to experiment with different research and communication tools such as sketching, computer graphics, video, writing.
Several short and precise projects are carried out during the first year
A long project is carried through to completion in the second year. It is completed with the writing of a dissertation. Project and dissertation are defended in front of a panel of professionals who award the diploma.
Career prospects are as wide as the range of approaches. Graduates can work in environment and interior design agencies as well as in wider structures that hire different specialists such as urban design, landscape design and architecture studios. They can also work for public institutions.
