'The pre-master offers space for research into new spatial insights.'
The programme for the Corpo-real pre-master has been developed for professionals and bachelor students.
You will discover how - within the corpo-real theme - you can work on research or design tasks. In twelve weeks, on the basis of this programme you will immerse yourself in the world of spatial design.
Your individual development is an important part of the lessons. You yourself are at work and you will get familiar with the world of spatial design. You are going to draw, make models, design, document and go on excursions.
Arjan studied architecture at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, where he graduated in 1999. He worked with KCAP in Rotterdam (urban planning) and at Foreign Office Architects in London (on the 100,000 sqm Trinity EC3 office complex). At Maxwan Architects & Urbanists he was responsible as team leader for the projects Housing study Rotterdam and Pompenburg and he was the leading architect for Maxwan's projects in Ukraine. In 2009 he founded his own practice focussing on the process of making, spatial specificity and new technologies. Arjan has won several prizes both as part of a team and individually.
Having worked and studied both in the United Kingdom and in the Netherlands, he has a thorough experience in the fields of architecture and urban planning in an international context. Arjan has taught at the Berlage Institute Rotterdam, at the Technical University in Delft, at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden and in the masters course of Artez Interior Architecture.
In the pre-master you are accompanied by teachers from the (international) field of work, both within the discipline of interior architecture and related disciplines. Your fellow students are all involved in researching designs within the corpo-real theme.
Documenting and reflecting on your work is an important aspect within this programme. The work you make can be used for an admission interview for an Interior Architecture master's degree programme.
