Social and Cultural Challenges in Interior Architecture

INSIDE is a 2 year fulltime master’s course located in The Hague.

The future interior architects at the Royal Academy of Art not only focus on designing physical space but engage fully with current social and cultural issues in society. They use their position to shape the relation between the space that relates most directly to people and the world that surrounds that.
