With a consistently interdisciplinary approach, Masterstudio Design reflects the belief that urging challenges in rapidly transforming lifeworlds can no longer be adequately addressed by isolated disciplines. The programme addresses inquisitive designers with questions to which their former training or work experience did not provide satisfactory answers and who want to shape their role as designers in a context characterized by diversity.
