Over the Edge is a Master Class connecting innovative design with
self-awareness. This is a 3-days hands-on format where you will experience working with flat, single and double-curved surfaces from a design, planning and construction perspective. It’s a comprehensive program, with 15 exercises of 1-2 hours each, focusing on you expanding your own way of designing and how you think about yourself.
This course keeps you mentally and emotionally engaged and stimulated from the get-go to the end. It’ll give you essential skills to diversify your design approach, and boost creativity!
We do support you in the search for truly innovative ideas. No more copy-paste! We talk about communication that supports the creative process. We offer the knowledge and the chance for you to develop your skills and take the first step to a more audacious approach to innovative freedom.
By the way, architectural students, engineers, landscape designers and designers are more than welcome, after all, how many times we work together, on the same team, right?
We all know what CPD usually stands for but with us think of it as, Creativity, Passion and Design.
