Master in Situated Design

During this two-year Master programme, students from various disciplines learn how to provide meaning to the world outside of the studio. In an interdisciplinary learning environment, students will explore how to take environmental, social, cultural and political factors as the basis for design processes.

Through exposure to a variety of design methodologies and practices, students learn to iterate design concepts and are able to analyze, inform and shape their projects from concept to final project. Students learn to design with emerging technologies and creative software to create new perspectives and innovative forms of design and user experiences.

On the basis of partnerships with commercial, governmental, scientific and cultural organizations, the Master programme offers a range of real-world challenges to engage with. Working on these challenges, students develop the skills, experiences and critical mindset required for design after the situated turn. The programmed is led by the core tutor, Ollie Palmer.
