Interior spaces are the core of the built environment that organize structures and facilitate our lives, activities and social behavior.

In this course, students are introduced to the complexities of developing interior spaces, which requires a special thinking of how humans relate to space.
The main focus, therefore, lies not only on the definition of space in its physical form and function, but in particular on the experience of space, its perception by humans.

During the two-week program, students will explore the relationship between building elements, the aesthetics of a space and objects in the space through short exercises and a final small-scale interior design.

Students will develop skills of observational and spatial drawing, model making and material investigations alongside comprehensive research and analysis as part of the design process.


By the end of the course students will have learned the fundamentals of the development of spatial concepts and spatial design. Priority is given to learning strategies that foster critical thinking, problem solving and decision-making capabilities. Together with the gained theoretical knowledge students will be able to produce small scale models, sketches and drawings that would deepen the knowledge and provide with the necessary skills for an accurate communication and presentation of an interior design project.
