YACademy launches Architecture for Exhibition, a high-level training course offering 8 scholarships and internships in internationally-renowned architectural firms.
110 hours of lessons, a 60-hour workshop and internships/lectures held by internationally-renowned architectural firms like Zaha Hadid Architects (London), David Chipperfield Architects (London), Jean Nouvel Design (Paris), Carlo Ratti Associati (Turin), Fabio Novembre Studio (Milan), Studio Urquiola (Milan), aLL Design (London), MAXXI (Rome), Italo Rota (Milan), and Ferrari SpA (Maranello).
Architecture has always played a key role in the exhibition. Museums, exhibitions, and expositions are not only a cultural offer but are defined by space, by an exhibition itinerary that is able to surprise and fascinate the
visitor who is drawn inside an active and inspiring experience.
For the exhibition, architecture is as fundamental as works of art, collections and artifacts and their contents. The “Architecture for Exhibition” course has been created on these premises: its aim is to train professional designers who are able to materialize diverse artistic and museum experiences, enhancing the always-
different story behind each cultural proposal. The students will acquire new skills in exhibition design and will move in a very prestigious environment – culture – which nowadays registers an increasing demand by the most critical and exclusive customers.
The students will focus on preservation practices, lighting techniques, and perception psychology to deepen their knowledge of technical practices to adopt in an exhibition design.
The workshop deals with a real design case agreed with Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and offer a great opportunity to analyze and realize the outcome design. Hence, dealing with the viability, perceptual, and compositional problems connected to the exhibition space, the students will learn how to design useful architecture that enhances and highlights the different contents of the exhibition, whilst responding to the cultural industry’s needs and to the needs of the companies that, every day more, want to tell a story about their production history and tradition.
Moreover, thanks to their internships in well-renowned professional firms, the students will gain an efficient link to the labor market.
YAC is an association which promotes architectural competitions aimed at fostering culture and design research. Over the years, YAC has broadened its experience of work and collaboration with the main architectural firms of contemporary architecture, dealing with diverse and numerous topics of architectural design. Nowadays, thanks to the collaboration with the University of Bologna, YAC’s expertise can serve young designers better, providing them with the creation of high-level educational programs aimed at polishing the skills of the students and offering them a valuable connection to the labor market.
Thanks to the close relationship with internationally renowned professional and academic actors, YAC is the perfect frame within which complete or specialize one’s skills and create a significative link with the most internationally-renowned architectural practices. The courses will take place at YACademy’s headquarters: a historical building located in the heart of Bologna historical city center, close to the Two Towers and next to Piazza Santo Stefano, undoubtedly one of the most picturesque corners of the city.
