Context – Spaces aren’t what they used to be. Times, societies and needs to experience the places are constantly changing therefore the Interior Designer interprets this evolution.

Methodology and structure – This Three-year course supports students in building a strategic vision and developing awareness of all the dynamics and variables affecting his activity.
The course structure is finalised to getting a balanced knowledge on space structure. It’s articulated in 4 main goals: Know your time, through the study of art history and architecture, sociology
and anthropology; Investigate new possibilities thanks to labs; Get the tools to use materials, colors, shapes and technologies; Tell the project through advanced skills of space representation.

First year is dedicated to getting a basic education, cultural references, tools and design methodology.
Students learn free-hand sketch and CAD - useful to make models using basic materials - subsequently 3D printers and laser cut machines.
Later on students get design consciousness and complete their skill set such as 3D modeling and production (render) of realistic images by the application of materials and lights to virtual settings.

By the third year students gain creative autonomy by experiencing the latest technologies of simulation and interaction applied to design, facing with real projects thanks to the collaborations with partner companies and institutions as MAXXI and MACRO exhibit spaces, cultural spaces as Teatro Eliseo or associations as la Fondazione Montessori and l’ONG Intersos.
