Cities, buildings, interiors: all of these have a huge impact on how we experience the world. In spatial design, we consider the urban environment as well as indoor and outdoor spaces on a small and large scale. It is a discipline that creatively combines cultural and artistic awareness, social engagement, economic responsibility and technical insight.You will learn to deal with the complex tasks and situations facing contemporary society. You will learn to develop a personal vision and to concretely implement this vision within a design practice. The teaching method focuses on projects that address contemporary themes such as sustainability, identity and the repurposing of buildings. Projects in previous years included an ‘instant museum’, a flagship store for a new brand, a long-stay hotel in an industrial area of Rotterdam, a multicultural theatre in a church in Rotterdam’s Zuidwijk district, and creative use of empty spaces in the city centre of Rotterdam.While working on design projects, you will also be taking practical classes, learning about analysis, the use of materials, architecture, model/mockup building techniques, drawing, software programmes, light/colour/texture techniques and presentation techniques. You will also be taking classes in professional theory and history. Furthermore, you have the option of participating in an exchange programme with partner institutes in cities such as Barcelona, Glasgow or Helsinki. Graduates find work as interior designers, assistant architects, object designers (for interior and exterior spaces), exhibition designers or spatial designers.
