The Programme: overview

Following the “learning by doing” approach, the BA alternates and integrates theoretical studies with experiential workshops. After having explored basic concepts and techniques, students learn to observe the multitude of contemporary forms of design and how to apply them to their work. The course aims at stimulating sensitivity and passion for the world of objects, understood as cultural artefacts that reflect and shape human life. It explores space as an environment, examining its interactions with objects and its function as a stage for individual and collective rituals.

Over the BA, students will have the opportunity to:

  • Acquire the cultural, scientific and technical competencies to develop a “problem setting” and “problem solving” approach
  • Develop the ability to understand specific contexts of use, translate the analytical elements into typological and formal solutions, and determine aspects of marketing and distribution
  • Learn how to use tools and techniques for the representation of spaces and products
