Bachelors in Urban Design in Europe 2017. Cities, buildings, interiors. These have major influences on how we experience our world. In spatial design, we look at the urban environment and at indoor and outdoor spaces at small and large scale. It is a discipline in which cultural and artistic awareness, social engagement, economic responsibility and technical affinity come together creatively. You learn to deal with complex tasks and situations that society faces. You learn to develop your own vision and to translate it into concrete design practice. The method of learning is through projects which cover current themes such as repurposing of buildings, sustainability and identity. In previous years, these themes included ‘quick-visit museums’, a flagship store for a new brand, a ‘long stay hotel’ in an industrial area of Rotterdam, a multi-cultural theatre in a church in Zuidwijk (Rotterdam), and an overhaul of empty buildings in the inner city of Rotterdam. While working on design projects, you take practical classes on analysis; the application of materials; architecture; model (maquette) building techniques; draughtsmanship; software programmes; techniques for light, colour, texture; and presentation techniques; next to that you take subject related theory and history. And of course you can do an exchange abroad in for example Barcelona, Glasgow or Helsinki. After completing the course, you can work as an interior designer, assistant architect, designer of interior or exterior objects, exhibition designer or spatial designer. You could also further specialise to gain a Master Interior Architecture & Retail Design at WdKA’s Piet Zwart Institute, or at the Rotterdam Academy of Architecture and Urban Design. Creating Pioneers Our successful Spatial Design alumni include: Tom van Odijk & David Baars (TomDavid Architecten); Dennis Vedder; Edwin van de Velde; the duo Daniëlle Linscheer & Joyce Brouwer (known from Hostel/Atelier Ani & Haakien); and Ashley Govers (From Form, founder and partner). PORTFOLIO CHECKLIST Are you … talented in visual arts? independent and responsible? dedicated and motivated? entrepreneurial? Then visit one of our Open Days or Open Evenings – and bring your portfolio! – and apply for admission. WHAT A selection of 10-15 works which were preceded by a creative process For example: designs, objects, photos, films, games, animations, fashion (accessories), furniture, models, drawings, posters, campaigns, paintings, usable artifacts and sculptures. You can publish and present all of this in a neat traditional portfolio folder, but you can also use different methods: 3D work can be brought in a (cardboard) box, digital work can be presented on a laptop or tablet. Please note: apart from these works, please show us some other things you created. Make a careful selection between the two. That way, we can assess to what extent you have an insight in your own qualities and your own work. [-]
