The CSP (Continuing Study Program) in Contemporary Interior Design covers the most relevant theoretical and practical tools to research and reflect on design in contemporary indoor spaces. 

The course structure comprises three project research fields: Space, Form and Materials. These ideas are developed in a series of projects that combine food venue exercises with commercial space design and hospitality workshops. As a final assignment, students are asked to apply all their technical knowledge in a practical project.

From the basis of the three fields of research (space, form, material), a series of projects will combine exercises on domestic and residential spaces with design for commercial spaces. Also there will be a workshop on ephemeral spaces, under the heading of “Projects Workshop”, which intends to foster and promote the most extensive and free creative possibilities. These practical exercises are complemented with lectures divided in two areas.
