Master of Interior Architecture

Estonian Academy of Arts
Campus Full time 2 years August 2019 Estonia Tallinn

We educate future interior architects. The programme provides the skills to analyse critically, develop and experiment with the different aspects of spatial environment creation and helps to develop a personal, creative approach. [+]

The Master's programme in Interior Architecture is based on the principle that a set of design skills, in the narrow sense of the term, is not sufficient for interior architects to be successful in their profession. They also need to understand the broader context and be able to adjust their solutions to changing situations.

Our curriculum is divided into two main segments:

The first (so-called ‘hi-tech’) segment deals with the interaction between spaces and people, and the ways high technology and smart materials help improve that interaction. The second (so-called ‘low-tech’) segment is based on the notion that if we have good knowledge of our surrounding, broader contexts (such as climate, nature, economy and culture) and their interrelationship, rich imagination and primitive materials are all we need to create fresh, quality spaces....
