This program focuses on the interior spaces of building, emphasizing the physical, psychological and social needs of people at work and leisure.

In order to create appropriate and inspiring interior environments, interior designers must understand their clients’ interaction within society and becapable of translating this understanding into designs. In practice, they develop projects for the whole spectrum of human activities, designing offices, shops, restaurants, resorts, hospitals, schools, residential interiors.
In preparation for this wide range of design opportunities, our students will be introduced to academic grounding in problem-solving, formal design skills, and pertinent historical and technical knowledge. Each level of the student’s education engages knowledge and skills in problem discovery and resolution, critical and imaginative thinking, communication, and technology.
Students will develop a deep understanding of how human beings inhabit and experience spaces, and become fluent in the expression of the elements and principles of interior design: point, line, shape, form, color, light, texture, time, rhythm, balance, scale, proportion, harmony, and unity.
Interior Design is a very competitive field, and your portfolio is crucial. Students are encouraged to present a graduation portfolio that combines different media: a traditional and a digital portfolio.

The Master in Interior Design at Accademia Riaci is a full-time program with a focus on advanced studio and academic research in history, theory and methods as they relate to an interdisciplinary approach to interiors and design. The Master program is of particular interest to graduates of various design programs and to practitioners in interior design, architecture and other related disciplines who wish to pursue post-professional study. An interdisciplinary approach to design is increasingly a requisite for professional advancement as designers attempt to satisfy the complex requirements of contemporary architectural and interior environments. The curriculum is formulated to expand understanding of different design disciplines, with special emphasis on their interdependence. There are four components to the program: a core design studio sequence, furniture design, lectures/seminars and projects. The core design studio sequence consists of a series of experiences of increasing complexity culminating in the thesis project. Each student must demonstrate originality, research and design skills, and creative capacity to resolve advanced problems in design. The thesis is presented to a graduate faculty jury for evaluation.
