Master in Design of Spaces
Request an interview to firstname.lastname@example.org
The master's degree in Design of Spaces program is an academic course designed specifically for advanced knowledge of the profession of designing spaces, both in its project, environmental and perceptive side, as its execution in the project; with a clearly professional will.
The degree can be obtained by taking all of the contents in one academic year or sequentially, studying each postgraduate certificate and a final project.
The postgraduate diploma in the Creation of Spaces focuses mainly on the design of atmospheres and the perception of space, understood as a continent where successive scenes assigned to content take place, from conception and understanding of the textures, the materials, colours and light.
The Postgraduate diploma in Execution and Space Management provides advanced training in the development of all aspects related to the execution of the project and, ultimately, the construction of new space design, such as ergonomics and user comfort, and the links between physical and psychological methods of construction, facilities and management process of the construction itself, as well as the regulations and legislation in force.
The Master in Design of Spaces aims to train professionals in the specific field of design and implementation of spaces. Aims to adapt the technical knowledge and creative work in the specific area of each space: commercial, residential, work, ephemeral scenery, new concepts of space, etc., in order to achieve the specialization of professionals demanded by the social, labour and business environment.
This master aims to professionalise an activity strongly linked to other disciplines, and which lacks of rigorous training in our geographic area, as well as complete the training profiles of a designer, architect, and technical architect. It aims to train professionals properly so that they are able to apply knowledge to the very notion of design. This master program aims to train professionals adequately in all legal and regulatory aspects of this discipline, detailing their responsabilities.
To complement the performance of the design, we provide students with the necessary tools that the profession requires, both in the technical aspect and in the presentation of projects. We also integrate graphical communication skills, which are essential in the process of designing commercial spaces, restaurants and ephemeral architecture.
It is essential that students learn to give value to new technologies in the preparation of the physical space, in addition to assimilate the emerging social and cultural values that are the basis of the implementation criteria through the disciplines that structure it: ergonomics, ergonomics, ecology, economics, sociology, anthropology and incidents and their implications for screening.

Academic Guide (in Spanish)
MODULE 1: THEORY AND DESIGN OF CRITICAL AREAS
Analysis and Review of the Space Design Models
Models in the history of design of spaces. Critical analysis of the types that are followed in the proposed design of spaces. History and development of trends. Historical evolution of representation. The computer and its influence on the representation of design of spaces.
Characterization and Evaluation of Spaces
Design methodology: study, describe and determine the attributes and layers of time in an existing space in order to find what distinguishes it from others and to recognize, love and appreciate the values it represents.
Project Workshop I: ephemeral intervention
Workshop projects linked to intervention in a space with history. Proposal for guests. Visit to the construction site to capture the current state.
MODULE 2: DESIGN THINKING APPLIED TO THE DESIGN OF SPACES
Creativity as Methodology
Ideas and sketch. Threading of ideas through the similarity-opposition process. Representation tools, and understanding of the design concept. Creating mental maps. Visits to unique spaces for its conceptualization.
Analysis of abstract concepts and individuals to create a narrative in the project and find a connection thread in the design process. Make use of images, words, and sketches to describe and measure the perception of the design. Analysis of the scope and sector of activity. Resources: text, image, colour, smell, sound.
Project Workshop II: commercial space
Project workshop focused on setting up a powerful concept that can be understood as the seal design to allow further develop of the design process in a linear and coherent way.
MODULE 3 - PERCEPTION AND EMOTION IN SPACE
Colour, Materials and Textures
Materials and colours in the design of spaces project. Specifications, symbolic and emotional elements of space. How to capture and represent the materials in the project. Plans with list of materials, technical and descriptive memory and samples.
The Light in Space
Fundamentals of light and colour effects and its application in space. Behaviour and properties of light. Types and functions of lamps and luminaires. Environment representation methods. Illumination representation with digital techniques (Photoshop and 3D Studio). Guest from the sector.
Project Workshop III: domestic space
Realization of a project of a residential district.
