Aimed at

For the students who are or were previously enrolled in Master’s Degrees and Postgraduates of ELISAVA. Former students of ELISAVA, architects, interior designers, set designers, illustrators and other creatives can also be enrolled. Requirements: basic knowledge of drawing and geometry.



Basic course in 3D modeling for the representation of an architecture project or space by using the Rhinoceros 5 software.

The course will have practice exercises in order for the student to acquire the necessary basic modeling knowledge in this discipline.

3D modeling techniques, rendering and image postproduction have been converted into an essential need in the creative process and in the final representation of the design project, being an essential element in the communication of the same project. 


  • Obtaining technical knowledge of the tools for the creation of a model that truly communicates what we want to represent.
  • The student will learn how to analyze geometry and to choose the process that best adapts to the needs of the project for the creation of the model.

Juan Carlos Ines

Product designer. Bachelor of Arts in Design - University of Southampton and studies of Industrial Design at ELISAVA. In early 90 he merges with Gonzalo Milà, and they created the Ines-Milà studio. It was a period in which they develop projects of ephemeral architecture and product. From 1997 he starts to work and to collaborate with museography companies and exhibitions. Currently, he has his own studio and alternates the product design with interior design and the exhibiting and cultural projects. Professor of the Degree in Design of ELISAVA.
