Interior & Experience Design Week
Interior & Experience Design Week
This one week programme from Future London Academy will cover the areas of residential, retail and workspace design and provide students with the tools and techniques to use on interior projects in a variety of contexts. During this week, students will participate in a rich mix of lectures and hands on workshops that Future London Academy curated by partnering with successful design, consultancy and media practices.
Students will leave with both a technical and strategic angle for their future projects. The experiential approach of this course consists of technical, cultural and social activities that together enable students to tailor their own design practice.
Besides some of the best design practices in the world, London nurtures a vibrant design community thanks to prestigious Art and Design institutions. This programme will also put students in contact with this community through informal gatherings, studio visits and debriefing moments with emerging designers and the course curator that will help the participant group deepen the understanding of the course subjects through collective content reviews.
