Why this programme?
Barcelona is a city with an illustrious tradition in interior design. As a discipline it has seen great success but until now there have not been any notable interior design educational offerings. This postgraduate course in Interior Design seeks to fill this void by offering a new program that awakens curiosity and sharpens the perception and sensitivity of participants. Interior design work starts where architecture leaves off and mainly deals with the empty spaces that have been created. It is the designer who has to keep the people who use the space in mind.

Up until now we have never seen so many different family models and different casuistries in terms of what are referred to as relational structures. People can live alone, with partners for a time period, or even with children and later without them, once they have become adults. This is why this postgraduate course totally breaks with the concept that has existed up until now; the concept that interior decorators or designers can do everything according to their own personal style and way of doing things. The personal needs of every individual and their situation have humbled professionals in this field.

This postgraduate course is may be taken independently or as part of the Master's programme in Space Design and Creation. In this course students will work with perception and awareness, two important aspects to take into account when learning how to listen and respect the opinions of others. When designing interiors nothing is ever completely finalised, anything can be created and final and definitive changes will come when the client finally moves into the space. All of the class sessions will be taught at the .

Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB)
