One-Year Course ・ Semester Course

Overview

Through this program, you will not only acquire a solid foundation in your study area but also develop specific, advanced skills, immersed in a stimulating learning environment.
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. Along with practical classes of your major subject - combined with challenging homework and assignments – our "Italian Arts & Culture Lessons" will provide you with fundamentals of Italian arts and design.
 Furthermore, you will broaden and enrich your artistic experience - looking beyond the borders of your specialty – through our weekly guided Art Visits and monthly Cultural Activities.
Students are encouraged to present a graduation portfolio that combines different media: a traditional and a digital portfolio.

Master Course

Overview

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's 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 requirement 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.

A final project is presented to a graduate faculty jury for evaluation.

Short Course

Overview

At Accademia Riaci, we do not just teach interior design; we encourage every student to access and nurture their own natural sense of flair and creativity that they can then turn into reality. Students are taught to understand the needs of people and create designs that are both aesthetically pleasing and practical. Classes will focus on Italian interior design, renowned for the world’s best sensibility in color, and minimalism, and for its superior taste. The course covers all aspects of interior design, from furniture design, and color theory to spatial planning and furnishing. Instructors will give individually tailored advice to each student, whether they are beginners, amateurs, or professionals.
This course is for new designers, students looking to improve their portfolio, or professionals wanting to revisit the basics.

Portfolio Preparation
The final portfolio should represent the student's skills acquired through the course and development as a designer.
