How can we reconsider the objectives, methodologies and results of the architectural and spatial design practices in an era where "temporary is the new permanent"? In the Master's Degree in Ephemeral Architecture and Temporary Spaces, will you find the balance between available resources and temporary projects?

Temporary space design is an increasingly relevant activity, encompassing a wide range of formats that are well-established in both the cultural sphere and the business world.

Master's Degree in Ephemeral Architecture and Temporary Spaces (known as MEATS) proposes an in-depth exploration of the main temporary space formats (event, pop-up, public space intervention and exhibition) with the aim of providing students with a general conceptual and instrumental toolkit, dealing with all stages of design from conceptualization to specific detailed resolution.

The Master establishes a firm connection between academic training (research) and praxis (construction), with the goal of broadening students’ understanding, developing their specialization, and situating them in a growing labor market.

The main goal of the Master's Degree in Ephemeral Architecture and Temporary Spaces (MEATS) is the comprehensive training of students in the field of temporary space design.

This training involves the acquisition of the following capacities:

  • Capacity for Creativity
  • Capacity for Strategic Thinking
  • Capacity for Research
  • Capacity for Multi-disciplinary work and Negotiation with the other agents in the design process
  • Capacity to Present and Communicate designs
  • Capacity to develop Material solutions for designs
  • Capacity to Construct design proposals

The thematic and methodological structure is organized to fulfill this primary objective, to ensure that students who successfully complete the Master’s degree will acquire a high value-added professional profile specialized in the design of temporary spaces in all different formats.

In addition to postgraduate academic preparation, the Master's Degree in Ephemeral Architecture and Temporary Spaces provides practical training through the actual construction of many of the design proposals, providing students with specialized professional experience that positions them very well in the labor market for temporary space design.

  • Advanced knowledge in temporary space design theory and its diverse formats.
  • Specialisation in the emergent professional field of ephemeral architecture and temporary space design.
  • Advanced skills in strategic design thinking and conceptualisation.
  • Advanced skills in developing both applied research and practice-oriented projects.
  • Theoretical and practical knowledge in graphic mediation systems: maps, diagrams, scores, scenarios and protocols.
  • Advanced skills in high added value graphic presentations using multiple formats and softwares.
  • Ability to develop physical prototypes using the advanced tools of the Elisava Lab (3D printing, laser cutter, CNC milling machine, vacuum moulding, steelwork and woodwork).
  • Hands-on practical knowledge in temporary space design construction systems.
  • Ability to prepare professional presentations and communicate projects to clients.
  • Real teamwork experiences with external partners from concept design phase to construction (Popup, Event, Art installations, Exhibition and Temporary Public Space projects).
  • Research-oriented teamwork organisation, scheduling and coordination skills.
