IE School of Architecture and Design

The IE School of Architecture & Design is one of the most innovative architecture schools in Europe. With a unique combination of design and entrepreneurship, the IE School of Architecture & Design pushes the boundaries of traditional architectural education. Our students are exposed to a multidisciplinary approach that prepares them to meet the needs of an ever-changing world.

IE welcomes students from all around the world who seek challenges and aspire to become leaders in the dynamic fields of architecture and design.

Master in Strategic Design of Spaces

The Master’s in Strategic Design of Spaces was created to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to approach challenges emerging in the world of interior space design.

The program focuses on three types of spaces; work, retail and education. We spend a considerable percentage of our time occupying these three spaces, and they continue to be in constant motion in terms of technological innovation.

The program was designed in partnership with the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design at the Royal College of Art in London – a research center specialized in design ethnography – where students will complete one of the program modules.

Students will gain first-hand experience by working alongside leaders in the field when visiting top studios, and through attending an IE Architecture and Design special lecture series.
