Our friends at the IE School of Architecture are transforming architectural education through avant-garde degree programs that combine the best of e-learning with dynamic on-site instruction periods in Spain and the UK.
Now, the IE School of Architecture has launched a new post-professional Master's in Work Space Design dedicated to rethinking work space in the 21st century. Catered to students from diverse educational and professional backgrounds, this program addresses emerging challenges in the complex design of the old office, from implementing new forms of communication and environmental sustainability to exploring workplace functionality in a an increasingly global economy.
IE has teamed up with the Helen Hamlyn Center for Design at the Royal College of Art in London to combine its business expertise with the center's research knowledge, producing a unique educational opportunity to confront some of the biggest challenges to the architectural profession. Jeremy Meyerson, director of the Helen Hamlyn Center, says, "The program has itself been designed to be practical, dynamic, and relevant, creating a learning experience with a direct and profound applicability."
With academic advisors drawn from both traditional and non-traditional backgrounds—with many specializing in pioneering disciplines such as Design Anthropology and User Engagement—this rigorous 13-month program promotes cutting-edge scholarship. Four engaging modules organize the student experience alongside three transferal units and a strategic design studio, which reinforce key concepts and training.
