the Bachelor and Masterprogramme space&designstrategies was established at Kunstuniversität Linz_AUSTRIA as an European novelty. Key elements of the programme include crossover conceptual and implementation-oriented tasks situated at the interfaces of art, architecture, design and digital media.
It teaches fundamental knowledge and skills in space-related design ranging from art, interventions in space to complex space-related concepts, realisations in space, virtual space systems as well as indepth materials science and implementation techniques.
Students analyse, define and materialise phenomena in both real and virtual space.
The programme aims to lead students to a high level of individual flexibility in developing solution strategies for a rapidly changing art and architecture and creative scene while at the same time imparting profound knowledge of materials science and process techniques.
Another central aim of the programme is to establish interfaces with both young and internationally renowned artists by organising lecture series, excursions, workshops and projects.
Extensive co-operation ventures with the public sector and business community enable students to apply the full range of techniques imparted as a sort of trial run while still in training.
In 2006, the platform space&designstrategies research was set up to organise research programmes with international participants for both bachelor/master and doctoral students.The programme also offers the possibility of embarking on a Ph.D. Doctoral Programme.
