language Spanish
duration 3 weeks
fee EUR 3100

The Summer Course in Retail Interior Design: Gastronomy and Retail is intended for architects, interior designers, product designers, retail, branding and visual merchandising company managers who wish to be challenged and to specialise effectively in an increasingly competitive and changing sector.

The aim of this course is to offer an overview of the main tools for experimentation and reflection in order to arrive at specific conclusions regarding how new commercial spaces for gastronomy and retail sales should look.

After studying the brand, an integrated design is presented that starts with the relationship that is established between the interiors, the objects, the materials and the installations.

From this broad, integrated material culture, therefore, the students will get to know the tools, analyse the mechanisms and design spaces related to the commercial reality of the city of Barcelona and, through the synergy and exchanges provided by classes, talks, workshops and visits, they will be able to garner or build up the knowledge needed to face professional challenges and the increasing demand for on-going training.

Course aim


- To experiment with contemporary retail interior decoration projects, to be understood as one stage in the productive process (design), in which priority is given to the interface between the inside (space and form), the objects (furniture), the materiality (material state and process) and the major installations that are part of it.

- To get to know retail spaces, and more specifically the interiors of bars, restaurants and shops in the city of Barcelona, trying to understand how they were planned by their creators, and the mechanisms and tools with which they were produced.

- To explore a variety of design tools, focusing on retail interiors, taking into account that the design experience itself is the mechanism that best fuses creative learning.
