MA Spatial Design examines the relationship between architecture, design and man from three perspectives: a historical, an anthropological and a tectonic/material perspective.
History offers a particular insight into the relationship between architecture, design, the individual and society, and the historical perspective is important in a Danish context, where most tasks include reuse.
The anthropological perspective has a similar awareness-creating function, relating to aspects of use and power within spatial organisation.
The ability to work with tectonics (art of joining) and materials is crucial within architecture and design, and tectonics should be linked to an overall design strategy. The three perspectives will be introduced through workshops, seminars and in the teaching of our two studios. The ambition is to train reflective practitioners who are able to connect design skills in praxis with academic competencies.
In order to insist on an interior as a starting point for the investigation, the projects will focus on certain areas where we have expertise among our staff: Transformation, Lighting Design, Spaces of Welfare, Tectonics of Interior Design, Exhibition and Experience Design and Urban Interiors.
