Masterclass: Interior Design

INVITATION

Friday 7 November 16:30 – 19:30 uur
 
There are many things to consider when choosing a graduate school and Masterclass: Interior Design aims to make this process easier. The focus of a master's degree course can differ greatly from school to school, as can the expectations of the different institutions and the lifestyles that can be enjoyed in the various cities. Frame's latest book explores what future students can expect from 30 leading graduate schools across the globe and discover what opportunities await them.
 
On Friday 7 November, the event will explore the world of interior design, with each speaker sharing insight in their world of interior design. Alex Suarez – course director of the MIARD programme at Piet Zwart Institute – will act as moderator, with a Q&A after each talk. We invite you to attend this celebration where there will be drinks and snacks.
