Cultural spaces

P1 - Performance space design
An important requirement is to create a flexible theatre, so the projects will include, besides the interior design approach, examples for other configurations, at students' choice.

P2 - Exhibition space design
The project includes an exhibition design with the theme Multi-sensory Routes, which gives students the opportunity to be interior architects, but also artists or curators.

S - Sketch - short project without guiding - the theme is correlated with the projects.

Teaching Method:

- theoretical lectures and multimedia presentations
- individual research, site visits
- specific products investigation – finishing materials, textiles, furniture, lighting solutions
- guidance, intermediate presentations


- project presentation in front of the jury
- the final grade is calculated as the average of the notes from the final presentations
