ArtCenter’s emphasis on spatial experiences produces leaders in the areas of furniture, lighting and interior/exterior living component design. We look at spatial experience as scenography—the staging of spaces.

ArtCenter’s faculty provide a rich and diverse educational experience that elevates students to be influential and impactful spatial designers. Our curriculum provides students with first-hand experience working with manufacturers, as well as opportunities to exhibit at international venues. The Environmental Design Department fosters the conceptual and technical knowledge of sustainable materials and current manufacturing practices students need to influence change in the world of design. Our alumni are creative leaders at top manufacturers, design studios and architectural firms around the world.
