DIS Interior Architecture Studio is now open for Fall 2019
Below, you will find updates about semester and summer study abroad opportunities in the fields of urban design and interior architecture at DIS Copenhagen. I hope you find them interesting and pass on to relevant colleagues.
Interior Architecture Studio Open for Fall Semester
I am delighted to share that the Interior Architecture Studio is now available during both the fall and spring semesters. The course was previously offered only during the spring semester. We are very excited about this and hope this gives more flexibility for you and your students.
Is the Interior Architecture Studio right for your student?
The Interior Architecture Studio is for students coming from interior design and interior architecture.
We also suggest that architecture students consider the program as an option and a way to dive more deeply into the understanding and design of interior spaces and use of light, materials, color, etc. It is our belief, that such a focus further strengthens architects and interior architects alike.
In past semesters, assignments in the studio have focused in particular on adaptive reuse - a huge theme in many places in the world – as well as exhibition design.
Admission for Fall 2019
While the final deadline to apply is April 1, DIS often reaches capacity before published deadlines. Please share this opportunity with colleagues and students early on.
Great Electives for Interior Architecture Semester Students
Studying interior architecture at DIS gives students access to a handful of relevant and exciting electives. Allow me to share a few of them with you:
With different geographical scopes, these two courses take students through all the design disciplines and how they developed in modern times.
Students dig into the details, junctures, and connections that make up the inner life of architecture and interior architecture. Using studies of existing buildings, the course develops a better understanding of detailing, while also exploring exciting ways of representing the details in architecture and interior architecture.
While Urban Design Core Courses are offered during the semester, I want to particularly highlight the summer as a phenomenal time to study urban design in Copenhagen. Named as one the world’s most livable cities, experiencing Copenhagen in the summer really makes one fully appreciate this.
The Urban Design Studio during our Summer Sessions takes full advantage of the great urban outdoors, by discovering urban design first-hand through assignments. We look at just how important urban design is for the people in the city by going on Field Studies and exploring the world-renowned bicycle infrastructure in Copenhagen.
Study Tours in Scandinavia
The week-long Study Tour to Sweden/Finland or Sweden/Norway further expands student’s understanding and appreciation of urban design and life in Scandinavia.
The deadline to apply for Summer 2019 is March 15.
Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have questions or would like to hear more.
