"The combination of thinking, creating, and reflecting is a tremendously valuable part of this master’s. When you are creating, you use different parts of your brain than when thinking or writing, and therefore your thoughts and inspiration go in different directions that you wouldn’t go in otherwise."

Hennieke Velvis alumna 2023

multidisciplinary workshop / Work in the Post-Apocalypse

with Daria Khozhai / 29 January until 1 February in Zwolle

"The people for whom I design should be part of the entire process and not just use the design at the end of the process. Their voices should be at the center. I believe that design can truly cause a societal shift in that way, or at least challenge the prevailing power hierarchy."

Irem Biter alumna 2023

“I learned a lot from my fellow students since they had more experience in the field than I did. The programme encouraged me to see my unique strengths. They showed me how my unconventional background – in law and as a paralegal- allows me to stay open to new ideas and not fall back onto a traditional approach to design.”

"Corpo-real students have to conduct an independent theoretical research which focuses on contemporary issues. The focus lies on the productive aspects of research, gaining knowledge that is useful for themselves and the profession."

Corpo-real discourse workshop

Corpo-real discourse workshop with Ingmar Nieuweboer on May 13, 1 pm

The setup of Corpo-real MA Interior Architecture is innovative and well structured. The idea of the studio as a laboratory addressing urgent societal matters including the interface between body, social, economic and technological “space” and spaces of inclusion seems to be reflected in the students’ works that often have the character of small research by design projects. The students are encouraged to think critically and to use design to explore contemporary societal challenges.

Charlotte Perriand

I would like to highlight the importance of transversal initiatives from students who pursued non-conventional research, daring to explore territories beyond the classic fields of Architecture. These initiatives seem to open up new spaces for the practice but also for the school and the field of education itself.
