Tackle interior design projects adjust to the needs of users who will occupy the space. [+]

Best Master's Degrees in Interior Design in Europe 2017. Look around and look at the space around you, one way or another has been designed from an intention, has been designed to meet a specific need, to solve a problem. In essence, this is one of the facets that define the design, a relatively young in their teaching discipline, but that is part of our DNA and emanating from our creative ability to find solutions for those problems that arise us. This requires a transformation process that begins in the field of the idea and eventually develop in this case tangible spaces, homes to inhabit and develop a part of life of every human being. That is why the design market housing is extremely large, we all need a place to live, and requires professionals able to develop projects that can fit like a tailored suit each user, which transmit, not only a needs basic, but a personality, a social projection. However, the design of interior spaces is more complex than at first may seem, consisting of a sum of several procedures to follow in order to successfully meet the project task. From the first ideas to the delivery of a work spend several months in which you have to follow a methodology of work scheduled, rigid contrasts with the creativity of the idea, which is the heart of any project. In the Masters in Interior Design we will give the necessary for students to learn and develop a methodology customizing your proyectual language and enable it to meet future interior design projects, based on the field of creativity, helping tools to look for a language as allowing each represent and present ideas with a cultural basis behind to solve in an imaginative way the different projects that may arise and thus deal with its complexities. This methodology should combine creativity through design and material production of that idea into a space, following a more rigid guidelines that involve the writing of the entire project in detail, calculation and cost control, management of the work, to housing delivery to the customer. GOALS The main objectives of this program are: Acquiring a personalized work methodology to optimize, manage and control the different runtimes of a project. Provide the tools to be able to direct, design and implement an interior design project from inception to delivery of the work to the client. Take economic control of the work, since the presentation of customer fees, measurements, control of budgets and work. Deepen knowledge of the different rooms to help project with greater agility. Learning to control the project at different scales until the development of construction details. Provide students with the knowledge and techniques of representation to present a visually neat project. At the end of the course, students will have material generated to develop a digital portfolio, enabling them to promote themselves in the workplace. CURRICULUM The Master in Interior Design is structured around the following subjects that are integrated into a final master project to provide the necessary tools to develop an interior design project. Space for reflection Provide the student references key figures in interior design housing which at the time represented a transgression or innovation, either by their way of being inhabited, or the use of construction materials, how to work with light, seeking to open the existing framework and sometimes too typecast you have the housing interior. It will seek to open the framework of the student, with the analysis and critique of space, the functional program to motivate students to experiment, investigate and transgress in the housing interior and generate a custom map references. Methodology and management: next steps in the project The student must master the steps in each phase of the project, based on a methodology that will allow customizing and should control the project from its beginning to its delivery to the customer. From the first idea from the customer briefing, calculate fees, through each phase of the project, reports, measurements and all necessary documentation to know how to manage the work, looking at the end of the course each student develops a personal process methodology . Facilities Introduce students to the implementation of a project installations, dimensioning. From the best location thereof within the project, the crossroads of different facilities and their problems. We work on the importance of light in the interior, from the analysis of the incidence of natural light in space, to the artificial light at the technical part such as light temperature, color rendering, types and effects to control one of the most important aspects interior design. plumbing, gas, electrical, data, air conditioning and heating are also covered in the interior design project for proper execution. Spaces and relations between them A historical and evolutionary view of space, combined with the functional and programmatic analysis of each stay and the possible relationships between them. The kitchen merges with the room and this in turn is related to the living room. Bathtubs leaving the bathroom to be located in the room where the bathroom is becoming a small spa. We delve into the degrees of privacy of a home that represents each stay. Sociology, new ways of living Most of the construction done today is aimed at what we call the "standard" family (father, mother, children). However we find great changes in the lives of individuals and social. Housing for young couples (with prospects of increase), housing for the elderly, single-parent homes, homes of youth groups, among others; which together with the increase of experience as co-living or co-hosting, posed changes focus when designing housing and adapted to new social needs. Designing spaces that can accommodate multiple uses and are adaptable, sometimes functional needs may limit future use. Work at home This module seeks to deepen programmatic issues that students can be found. It is increasingly common to find people who can do their work from home instead. We must therefore find a place within it that is comfortable, ergonomic, encouraging ... Working from home loosens many aspects to make your own schedule, avoid displacement, among others, but also need to create a separate space that psychologically allows spatially differentiate home to work giving special treatment to develop the activity in the most productive as possible. A part of the study and analysis of caseloads of shophouses, the student will look deeper into aspects related to work such as ergonomics. Styling, feel at home Colonize the interior of the projects by the people who occupy and work together to integrate the furniture, paintings, carpets, personal collections, curtains, objects in detail. The goal is to make housing a personalized, unique place where you feel comfortable, while we seek a harmony of all elements with space. Construction and production, we enter work Once you have written the technical side, begins the construction phase. Since it is extremely complex, it is necessary to have enough technique to build what we have projected. It is the time where the designer has to manage the relationship with industry, be able to solve problems that arise in the process and make decisions in a short period of time, it is to introduce students into the work with the different phases that compose, from demolition to housing coatings either level floors, ceiling, walls, woodwork and furniture, controlling the execution times to deliver the completed project to the client. Construction and production, materials The materials are a fundamental part of a work. You have to have control and sufficient knowledge of the different materials for proper execution, its different uses and ways to work them under different conditions to finish developing the most detail any constructive element, designing and solving possible problems. Representation techniques The importance of knowing how to present ideas to the client a visually appealing and intuitive way to give students the necessary tools for layout and prepare all the different documents generated in different programs into a single document or file ahead of its presentation. Also we give you the tools to see photo mount images that help sell the idea to the customer. The visual aspect is an essential tool for the project comes through the eyes tool. Master Thesis The Final Master Project encompasses all learning that the student has acquired throughout the Masters in different subjects. It will be to implement a housing program in a predefined space with a briefing of a prospective customer with their needs and where they seek the student to demonstrate that it is able to apply all the knowledge taught in different subjects, and perform a work from the inception to delivery of the same customer.

The Car Interior Designers specialize in the future and innovation of means of transport from the inside and builds future design scenarios by studying the user, its cultural needs, trends in society and use of the vehicle. The different subjects covered during the Master in Car Interior Design and User Experience allow future professionals to provide innovative solutions, related to the evolving needs of companies and buyers. [+]

THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN ENGLISH Entry Requirements: The Master in Car Interior Design and User Experience welcomes IED graduates, or students from Art Academies or private schools and graduates in related areas such as Design, Architecture, Engineering and Media Design, professionals with at least two years of experience in this sector. Structure and Methodology: The Master's programme focuses on research and innovation in different sectors, with an emphasis on practical activities of design, to enable students to develop their creativity, refining tools and knowledge through a targeted and structured approach: the fundamentals of Interior design of cars, both technically and psychologically, emerging technologies, identifying layout and models of use of interior space, traditional materials and the latest generation, new trimmings, technologies and integrated platforms with a particular emphasis on interface design. From a cultural perspective, the Master in Car Interior Design and User Experience covers subjects such as the history and trends of Car Interior Design and the study of perception. Students improve their skills and techniques in the visualization and communication of ideas, forms and concepts. The laboratory of communication occurs with the practice in the advanced levels of 2D and 3D Photoshop and other industry-specific programs. The environment of the cockpit is examined in all its functionality. The user and his needs are always at the center of the project proposal. This means improving and facilitating the driving of the vehicle, the passenger compartment comfort in all aspects (functional, aesthetic, sound, touch) and its security. Much importance is given to human-machine interface. The important flow of visual information, sound messages or control actions through devices and controls located on the dashboard in front of the driver requires a careful and intelligent planning that facilitates the interaction between the driver and the car as a function of maximum driving safety.

THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN SPANISH The Master of Interior Design defines and develops the essential concepts of interior design in order to understand the relationship between the user and the space around him or her, a space that has evolved along with new trends and lifestyles. Experimentation through our five senses is an essential part of the Master’s approach, which delves into concepts such as: volume, materials, light, transparencies and the spatial journey and rhythm as elements that create sensations and experiences, creating a solid foundation for innovative solutions. The Master in Interior Design proposes a research process that materialises into projects on the various kinds of spaces, lending them an open approach, experimenting with a range of spaces: residential, commercial, exhibition, multi-use, ephemeral, etc., to offer students a comprehensive view of their future professional activity. Students achieve a high level of specialization in the interior design environment. During the Master of Interior Design, they investigate, analyze and examine in depth the design with a view close to the art, architecture or construction, acquiring knowledge that make easy to face any type of project of spaces. Throughout the master, aspects such as sensory experience in the spatial game, isolated or together, the sensitive use of light, transparency, paths, rhythm and the tectonic condition of the materials are taken into consideration. After completing the course, students are able to master the implementation of the design in its context, the volumetry, the relationship with the pre-existing and the scale and proportion control. They are also able to establish the priorities of a space requirement program, the viable technical solutions, the project budget control and finally the public communication of the same. [-]

Master in Interior Design for Commercial Spaces

IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Barcelona
Campus Full time January 2017 Spain Barcelona

The Master in Interior Design for Commercial Spaces proposes to work from the basis of a theoretical and practical reflection on the design of the commercial space. [+]

Best Master's Degrees in Interior Design in Europe 2017. THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN ENGLISH The Master in Interior Design for Commercial Spaces proposes to work from the basis of a theoretical and practical reflection on the design of the commercial space. The aim is to combine theoretical concepts and construction, quotation, and material interpretation, with the understanding that the design practice exists in relation to current society, to the present. Therefore, applying a historical perspective to design, analysing the current situation, and referring to the history of the place will, therefore be important issues to consider. The Master uses Barcelona as its working ground, and so deals with the commercial space associated with a territory where the street is the protagonist. Due to the geographical characteristics of our city, and good weather, much use is made of public spaces. Streets and squares are open spaces that oxygenate the urban fabric; and, within this area of high-density housing, they provide necessary ‘living rooms’ for citizens. Barcelona, unlike American cities, for example, is a “mixed-use” city, a sparsely zoned territory, where domestic life, work, and leisure co-exist. These two characteristics, the use of the public space and the “mixed-use”, makes the ground floor an important place of transition, and a threshold between public and private life. The boundary between the interior and the exterior is a blurred one, where the confines of the street do not end at the buildings, but rather extend into their interior, through its contact with the ground. Over the past few decades Barcelona has been reconstructing its own landscape, limited by the geographical elements that surround it (mountains, rivers, and the sea), carrying out different urban projects which arose from historical needs. In recent years, these transformations have been tied in with major events, and three projects, in particular have changed Barcelona’s urban structure: The Olympic Village developed for the Olympic Games in Barcelona in 1992. The extension of Avinguda Diagonal carried out in 2006 which involved the modification of the metropolitan area of Barcelona, extending Avinguda Diagonal as far as the sea. The creation of 22@ in the Poble Nou district, a new urban structure designed to transform the old area into a focus for new activity, where a balance is sought between its different potential uses. Making use of this richness, the course deals with the concept of the commercial space in relation to the “street”, taking into account the social and political situation to intervene in places that form part of the public debate. Objectives Confronted with the accelerating evolution of consumer markets, we are bombarded with image, identity, ambiance and life-style, which often have little to do with the everyday products they represent: the ‘consumer society’. Through work carried out during the Master, students will address the issue of commercial space not as an abstract construction, but as a commentary on reality. They will develop projects that are highly realistic and form part of the debate on the regeneration and design of the city. The projects will be supported data provided by the City Council’s Department of Architecture. The aim is for students to have closer contact with the professional world and to acquire the necessary tools to tackle the heterogeneity and diversity of programmes and places encompassed within the field of interior design. Following an integrated programme of practical and theoretical sessions, the participants will be assisted from the initial stages of strategy and conceptualization, through the design process to final presentation. Particular emphasis will be placed on the interdisciplinary aspects of the project, opening new ground to the designer, while reinforcing and amplifying previously acquired knowledge. The course is focused predominantly on research, learning a methodology, and project process. The end result is not an objective in itself, but a vehicle for providing the student with the knowledge and tools necessary to handle any type of multidisciplinary project in the future. Participants will have to develop the ability to plan and understand the stages of work process, by alternating both aspects. The course also draws on the students’ diverse backgrounds in order to further enhance the group’s knowledge. Methodology The Master offers an intensive program that provides methodological tools, steering away from the “inspired” search for an image related to an end result. The course will prepare the student in the field of abstraction, to design the space according to its emotional and visual aspects, and to pursue individual ways of thinking. The research avoids “decorated” or “fancy” spaces, in order to reinforce the knowledge of the nature and sensitivity of the place. This methodological and heterogeneous vision will increase the students’ professional skills, opening up their field of work in the design world. Work will be carried out on different scales, from the urban to the human, from overall context to detail, allowing for comprehensive control of the project. The teaching methodology proposes projects that define the place in four ways: 1_ The physical space in which they are carried out. 2_ The “present” in relation to its historical situation. 3_ The social reality and therefore issues that concern citizens. 4_ The matter as an interpretation oflife. Students Profile Students will be required to present a graphic portfolio demonstrating their ability to manipulate shapes, and their mastery of design theory. Moreover, two exercises are required to be sent: 1. The construction of a space through the cutting and folding (without separating pieces) of an A4 sheet of paper: just one photograph should be presented and an adjective that define the space. 2. Construction of a space of light through the strategic perforation of a foam board box 50x50x50cm: just one photograph should be presented and an adjective that define the space. (More detailed information will be provided during the application process). All students admitted must have a qualification in one of the following areas: ‐ Architecture ‐ Engineering ‐ Interior Design ‐ Product Design ‐ Graphic Design ‐ Visual Arts ‐ Landscaping ‐ Social Sciences During the project process, the Master promotes group work as a learning methodology: two or more students, with different experiences, who are able to manage the proposals will be better prepared for the reality of professional practice, and it also makes the course more realistic. For this reason, the Master course values the fact that students have different qualifications, as this enhances the interdisciplinary peculiarity of the projects. Professional Opportunities The Master students will have acquired sufficient knowledge for them to be able to integrate different disciplines from the design world into their projects: ‐ Architecture: the project method starts with a physical and historical analysis of the place. ‐ Interior design: understood as a continuation, an extension of the exterior space; avoiding “fancy solutions”, and seeking spaces with atmosphere and imbued with their own particular character. ‐ Product design: the ability to use detail or an object as a project matrix, whether for its modular, geometric or fractal capacity. Coordinators The coordinator of the Master supports the choice of the teaching team, all of them professionals with extensive experience, and associated with prestigious institutions and organisations in their fields of expertise. We have the participation of prominent international professors and speakers, who will explain to students the different approaches to designing contemporary interior spaces. Timetable: Monday to Friday from 6.30 p.m to 10.30 p.m. * The educational planning for all IED Master courses is aligned with the criteria established by the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). The IED Master program has adopted a credit structure that follows the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). The IED Master issues private degrees. [-]

Master of Interior Architecture

We educate future interior architects. The most important practical subjects are the design of space, furniture and architectural details. [+]

Master of Interior Architecture and Furniture Design We educate future interior architects. The most important practical subjects are the design of space, furniture and architectural details. For instance, the students learn to design homes, schools, cafés, both modern and demanding historical interiors. The students also learn about painting and landscaping, photography and philosophy. The Academy of Arts has educated interior architects for more than seventy years. One can honestly say that all of Estonia’s most important interiors have been designed by our graduates and current faculty members. We try to adhere to a principle that stresses the integrity of form and content but also considers the function of the space or the item. We keep our finger on the pulse of our times, while also searching for our own path. In our climate, people unfortunately spend most of their time indoors and not outdoors, and therefore, whether we like it or not, indoor spaces have a great impact on our everyday lives. Therefore, interior architects and furniture designers have a unique opportunity to improve the world – to use their ideas to make people happier. INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE AND FURNITURE DESIGN AS A PROFESSION The field in which we operate – the built-up environment as a whole – forces us to synthesise and perceive architectural problems and environmental issues more generally. At the same time, we deal with all the smallest tangible details and problems that people are personally interested in. And we must know what is happening in the other design fields and fine arts, and to be familiar with a large number of technical disciplines. These include, among others: lighting and acoustics, heating and ventilation, building and finishing materials, building and furniture structures, and various computer programs. If we add good communications skills, necessary for understanding and influencing the client or various interest groups related to the design process, as well as the need to be well-acquainted with the specifics of various design fields, we get quite an awe-inspiring list. WHAT ARE THE STUDIES LIKE? The three-year BA programme places the greatest emphasis on the theoretical and practical learning of general art subjects and technical disciplines, which enables the graduate to continue in the MA programme, or to work as an assistant in an architectural or interior architecture office, in various media fields, as well as in manufacturing, service and business enterprises. The MA programme basically focuses on various specialised creative projects, the in-depth analysis of the elements of the built-up environment, and the completion of the master’s thesis. In accordance with the curriculum, the studies add up to 120 ECTS credits. Graduates of the MA programme can work as independent specialists in both the design and construction fields, in the furniture industry, at media and advertising companies, as well as in service and retail enterprises. INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE AND FURNITURE DESIGN AT THE ACADEMY OF ARTS Interior architects have been educated at the Academy of Arts for more than 70 years. One can honestly say that all of Estonia’s most important interiors have been designed by our graduates and current faculty members. One could mention Leila Pärtelpoeg, who restored the Tallinn Town Hall and numerous manor houses; Väino Tamm, the foremost modernist of the 1960s; and current Professor Emeritus Vello Asi; Pille Lausmäe, famous for her luxurious minimalist interiors; and Tiina Mang, who has gained fame for her neo-functionalist furniture. The department is headed by Professor Toivo Raidmets, who has created sensations with his striking club interiors and interesting furniture. The foundation for the education of interior architects in Estonia was established by a presidential decree on 1 August 1938. To date, 551 interior architects, studying full- and part-time, have received their professional higher education diplomas. The preliminary step for the establishment of the Department of Interior Architecture was the opening of a woodworking workshop at the Tallinn Industrial Art School in 1917, where furniture design was also taught. A more professional education of interior architects was initiated in 1938, when an interior architecture course was introduced at the State Higher Art School, which was created on the basis of the industrial art school. The mission-oriented idea to educate interior architects may have come from the members of the progressive Association of Applied Arts (RaKÜ). Its membership including practicing architects who had no professional education. One of them, Richard Wunderlich, was Estonia’s most prominent designer of luxury furniture, chairman of RaKÜ, the school’s director and one of its first teachers. The RaKÜ members also included a dozen outstanding architects, including Edgar-Johan Kuusik, who became the head of the department after World War II. The studies, which had been interrupted by the war and ensuing political changes, were resumed in 1944 in a reorganised school of higher education with a new name – Tallinn State Applied Art Institute of the Estonian S.S.R. The first interior architects with higher educations graduated in 1949. The department was closed in 1955. More changes occurred – the State Art Institute of the Estonian S.S.R. (ERKI) was created by merging the institutes for art education, and the speciality was consolidated in a department with the new name of Spatial Design. In 1959, students were again admitted and a younger generation of interior architects filled the faculty positions. Bruno Tomberg, Väino Tamm, Leila Pärtelpoeg and Vello Asi were engaged in the teaching. The studies were organised on the basis of a new curriculum, and an up-to-date study profile was developed. The studies focused on a form idiom influenced by Nordic Modernism, which emphasised functionality and constructiveness. The so-called Tamm School, which favours clarity and succinctness, has ensured the recognised level of Estonian spatial and furniture design since the 1960s. STUDIES The graduates can work independently as interior architects and furniture designers – their diplomas correspond to the professional standards approved by the Association of Interior Architects. The Academy of Arts is the only accredited school of higher education in Estonia that offers the relevant BA programme. The studies include numerous international workshops, lectures by visiting professors, seminars and the students introduce their work at both local and foreign fairs (in Stockholm for example). Especially close collaboration exists with the Nordic countries. Students can continue their studies at foreign schools of higher education, or, if they wish, in the PhD programme at the Academy of Arts. In accordance with the curriculum, the studies comprise 180 AP, of which half are related to the specialised theoretical and practical subjects. Of the theoretical subjects, the following deserve special mention: the history of architecture and interiors, architectural typology, the parts of buildings, health protection and fire safety, lighting equipment, architectural acoustics, computer studies, art management and much more. The practical subjects include the design of space, furniture and architectural details. The relevant projects are completed as exercises, and samples of furniture and furnishing elements are produced in the departmental workshops.

Best Master's Degrees in Interior Design in Europe 2017. Master program in INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE - New forms of contemporary living The Master examines the space designed both in its aesthetic and functional aspects and in those, less obvious, methods of use and symbolic values. It emerges a dual path, starting from the instinct of men to make room, placing its own habitat, investigates the performative value of built, depositary of the fundamental values of the community. Suggestions and theoretical stimuli become the material on which it's possible to develop the project activity focusing all attention on making concrete what elective scope of a designer. Objectives and teaching methodology Design is experiencing a time of strong momentum and spreading. The rapid evolution of production methods and lifestyles increasingly requires adaptability and innovation. Anticipating and stimulating change has become one of the main drivers of growth and competitive factor of contemporary economies. The traditional disciplinary boundaries are overwhelmed by the need for greater interaction, ability to work in groups and technology transfer. Designers are required to know new tools of representation and sharing of information as well as to improve skills of listening to the needs. However, new opportunities open for designers who are asked to draw on the wealth of traditional knowledge without conditions or obligations formal style. The product of creativity, also applied to a theme as old as the living, can become a software that helps us orient ourselves or an interface to manage a home automation application but in any case it must be time to take advantage of new knowledge to improve the welfare and meet the need for comfort. It seems clear, even from this brief introduction, that the master is not intended only to transfer a pre-established knowledge and consolidated experience as the use of techniques, materials typical of other fields such as literature, chemistry, neurosciences, cinema, computer science. Finally we want to give space to the themes typical of professional practice and management of the project and to the team of employees that the customer, considered part of the quality of work of the designer. In addition to the conscience of the economics of the project, students IAAD must acquire the ability to do marketing of themselves - essential to present and understand their work and their skills. During the course, great importance is given to presentations and design contest: students are encouraged to make presentations of their work and supported to participate in national and international contests: the projects must not only meet the designers, but they must be able to be appreciated and understood by juries of experts and the public. FACULTY Professionals working in the respective academic subject sectors, who know the main players of the sector and the skills needed to be competitive in the job market, make up IAAD teaching staff. Lecturers will be instrumental in helping students improve and comprehend which aspects of one's professionalism need to be perfected to enter the job market with a lead. Contributions of excellence IAAD believes in the value of cultural and experiential contamination, opening the doors of the university to professionals known nationally and internationally, experts who contribute to the didactic, leading workshops, seminars and lectures. Students will have the unique opportunity to interact with "gurus" of the sector, who will join IAAD faculty as Visiting professors. [-]
