'Exhibition Design' Online Course by Node Center

This complete guide to exhibition design will provide the technical and conceptual knowledge to plan and execute the production of three-dimensional environments. In this course, participants will gain an understanding of different organisational phases, discover strategies to create accessible and understandable visitor experiences, and explore the multiple possibilities of design through shape, colour, sound, lighting, texture, image, text and scenography.

Through a variety of case studies, participants will learn about different expository contexts and the unique technical elements used within them. In addition to the live online classes, participants will be invited to plan their own exhibition with the help of complementary exercises, putting into practice the concepts and tools provided. At the end of the course, they will be able to connect content and space with an overview of the complete process of designing an exhibition.

*Video conferences every Monday at 7pm CET. Recordings will be available in case you miss a live session!
