Testimony of a former student of Master Designer Interior Designer:

Anne Sophie

"After a year Manaa, I joined the BTS Design Space in Autograf school. Later, as I felt good Autograf and that I could validate my Bachelor of equivalence, I continued on the Master of Interior Designer Architect. These formations have clearly taught me to better understand the space to exercise my eye and have reflexes that, in the workplace, are essential.

BTS in Design Space, professor and landscape architect Fuchs Magali taught me the basics and the crucial stages of an interior designer: look at the space and decode it, consider its location and its history .

Master a logical continuation of BTS Space Design, this specialized training builds on ideas previously acquired with more autonomy. It is more focused on the workplace and preparing to enter the workforce through partnerships between Autograf and some businesses.

During my first year Master, our two referees trainers Frédéric Dupressoir professor / architect DESA and Marie Begel, teacher, designer and colourist, have set up a collaboration between the school and the Post Autograf to achieve a "research project ". It was to "redesign" and rethink Post offices in rural areas. This experience has allowed us to confront a real demand and defend our proposals to a jury of professionals.

Today, thanks to Autograf and Pierre-Yves Graffe (architect, design studio professor and technical feasibility), that for several years now, I work in architecture and design agency FDL is located in Beijing with my trusty comrade Thomas who also followed the same course as me to Autograf. We are working on various projects throughout China bars, bookstores, 5 star hotels, shops, cinemas, apartments ... You should know that China has a work rate that differs greatly from ours. This is an accelerated rate that requires an adjustment period, support and great battery life. All the knowledge acquired at school are very important because they are constantly solicited in the workplace.

For example, the implementation phase of an APS (preliminary design) in China for a 500m2 project can be completed in 4 days: Day 1: studies and references to image searches. Day 2: conceptualization of space on Autocad. Day 3: 3D modelling space. 4th day: presentation on power point with boards of client materials. These different stages of project development are identical to those that we learn in school.

Moreover, as in any architectural firm, the oral presentation of a project is essential and almost constant. Daily, to be convinced about the reasons that led us to prefer a certain type of design over another. Now I understand why trainers have always insisted on making us work and improve our ability to express ourselves orally. That said, we play much at school and at the agency because we realize the wildest designs. The Chinese customer likes the original ideas. "
