MISSION AND GOALS

Based on a project culture and on our own innovative methodology, the Master in Interior Space Design Methodology course aims to produce professionals with the ability to innovate in the vast field that is space design. Different spaces and scales will be worked on in a multicultural context, ranging from the human side to urban aspects, focusing on the details and taking on a contemporary, cross-sector approach.

​- To have greater contact with the professional world and acquire the necessary tools to tackle the heterogeneity and diversity of programmes and places encompassed within the field of interior design.

- To focus predominantly on research by learning a methodology and project process. The end result is not a goal in itself, but a vehicle for providing the student with the necessary knowledge and tools to handle any type of multidisciplinary project in the future. Students develop the ability to plan and understand the stages of the work process by alternating both aspects.

The course also draws on the students’ diverse backgrounds in order to further enhance the group’s knowledge.

TARGET

- architects, interior designers, permanent or pop-up public space designers, landscape designers. 

- urban furniture designers, atmosphere designers as creative art directors (in films, TV and advertising).

- product designers (furniture systems, surfaces, sustainable and recycled indoor finishes),

- design consultants, graphic designers, stage designers (in theatre and dance),

- exhibition and stand creators and assemblers,

- fine arts professionals (sculptures, performances, installations, photography), events organisers and designers (fashion shows, corporate events, celebrations), and more.

PRESENTATION

The programme of the Master in Interior Space Design Methodology draws on the importance of creative autonomy in the project design process, geared towards producing original solutions by inverting the usual procedure behind space design. This is done by limiting options to a single material but offering the incentive of technical innovation based on the student’s research.

The process culminates when the space designed is able to instantly transmit sensations and atmospheres from the moment the user interacts with the space and the material. The result is a space capable of combining authorship, concept and meaning.

The course gradually reveals the origin, essence and soul of things. It ventures deep into the core and the rigour of the raw materials that construct space, exploring and researching the power of materials in the quest for an architecture that can unveil the intrinsic nature of each one.

METHODOLOGY AND STRUCTURE

The duality between the two worlds of method and practice harbours a system based on values: a manifesto of intentions and actions happening all at once to produce a singular learning methodology.

This manifesto envisages theoretical categories and action formats that have been empirically tested by IED and the course coordinator, Josep Ferrando, over the last ten years at two of the School’s centres: Barcelona and Rio de Janeiro.

Our manifesto seeks to express the principles and actions that guide a different way of seeing, thinking and expressing through architecture.

1- Know-how vs inspiration

2- Process vs results

3- System vs method

4- Efficiency vs accessory

5- Multi-scale vs mono-scale

6- Strict vs random

7- Experience vs object

8- Subtle vs explicit

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
