We’re developing and validating a new course, the BA (Hons) Design for Branded Spaces, to replace the  BA (Hons) Spatial Design. The new course is due to start at London College of Communication in September 2017 (subject to validation).

The process of making an exhibition

2nd year BA Spatial Design students worked with the 2nd year BA Design Culture Management students to curate, design and build an exhibition showcasing a collection of artefacts from the Cuming Museum. The project was initiated and managed by Dr Nicky Ryan at London College of Communication. The BA Spatial design joined the BA Deign Culture Management in March 2015 although discussions with the Cuming Museum started in January when we wrote a post called After the Fire: Re-imagining the Cuming Museum. The exhibition successfully launched in May 2015 in one of the galleries at LCC and was opened to the public for a week.

Zahra Toolabi, 2nd year student on the BA Spatial Design made a fantastic film that shows the process of making and constructing of the exhibition. The film highlights how well the students worked together as well as the fantastic technical facilities available at LCC. The film shows students working in the 3D workshop, laser cutting area and print studios, and is a great example of how useful these facilities are for spatial design students.

Valerie Mace’s thoughts on BA Spatial Design

Valerie Mace wrote an interesting blog post about BA Spatial Design. Here is an extract below:

In recent years I have found it increasingly difficult to define myself as an interior designer simply because the nature of my work is so much more complex and ‘undisciplinary’. I can say with certainty that I work with spaces but projects (and clients) today demand highly sophisticated creative practices which straddle ground and relationships between interiors, surfaces, products, graphics, architecture, environment, art, communication, technology and psychology. We are talking about spaces designed for people with all the wonderful complexities that it entails. I believe working in design has never been more exciting.

So this is what I’m experiencing as a practitioner but what about people who are about to embark on a career in design? I’m fortunate as a university lecturer to be working within the dynamic and innovative Spatial Communication programme at London College of Communication. We have been given the opportunity to redesign our portfolio and provide our students with an advanced learning programme that addresses the intricacies of today’s design industries in a stimulating and inspiring style.
