Wherever you are in the world, meet the students and the coordinator and learn everything you want to know about the INSIDE programme and our art academy. It is also the perfect moment to ask any questions you might have about the study programme, the application procedure and admission requirements. Students from multiple backgrounds in architecture, art, and design who work with space and are interested in spatial design are welcome in this programme.

The programme in short
INSIDE is a two-year international Master’s programme offered at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. The programme strives to explore the field of spatial design in its broadest sense by reimagining the role of the practicing designer with concerns about our living environment and our society in transition. The name INSIDE refers to this broader position we envision for the professional practice of the interior architect. At INSIDE, we explore the role of the future designers as mediators of spatial inclusion towards a more just society.

At the core of the programme is the unfolding of a variety of positions and alternative practices aimed at enhancing students’ skills as resilient spatial makers and thinkers. By enabling the students to position themselves in this broad landscape and to recognize their own fascinations and values, they can deliberate on the impact they aspire to make on the world. At INSIDE, the world is our interior and the position of the interior designer expands across multiple approaches, media, and scales.

INSIDE follows a research-based approach to spatial design. A questioning and investigative attitude is integral to the curriculum and is expressed through reflections in presentations, interpretation, and writing throughout the two-year duration. Within these research and design processes various phenomena are explored in depth in four parallel sections within the programme: Flows, Theory, Skills and Travel.

The fact that this Master’s programme is offered at an art academy influences the curriculum. At INSIDE, through spatial design and research, we celebrate experimentation, and we speculate on possible futures for our built environment.

The image above shows an example of the graduation project “Cultivating Companionship”, by Lina Hülsmann and guided by Nasim Razavian. In this project, she critically approaches the existing monoculture of corn plant in Bersenbrück, a small village in northwest Germany. The project is a multi-layered project developed through different research methods of theoretical reading, site analysis, and material experimentation. It imagines a community consisting of humans, mushrooms, plants, animals, insects, architectural structures, and plant-based materials all in symbiosis with each other. The project opts for a just society for both humans and nonhumans.
