The Master in Interior Architecture M A I A is a 2-year professional programme that prepares its students to master the progressive diversification of interiors in the contemporary world, characterized by cross-disciplinary approaches, from design to visual art, from audio-visual culture to digital reality. 

The programme envisions Interior Architecture as the crossing point between the spaces, objects, and territories that construct contemporary societies, addressing urgent issues such as environmental impact, renovation of existing heritage, spaces of shared economy and construction of inclusive communities. In reaffirming the central role of physical spaces, M A I A explores how Interior Architecture operates at the intersection between physical interiors and the parallel narratives of mediated interiors, such as those of publicity, cinema or online media. 

The program is organised in cooperation with the Joint Master of Architecture and with Ecole Camondo in Paris.
