Interaction Design Programme in Costa Rica

Thursday, 1st Aug 2019

We have chosen Costa Rica as the first location for our Interaction Design Programme outside of Denmark because the country is home to a staggering 6 percent of the world’s biodiversity. This makes it the perfect place to focus on life-centred solutions.

It’s effectively the same programme we run in Copenhagen: same faculty, same network – different context.

Our aim is to combine the potential of the most diverse ecology with thought leadership in design. We want to learn from and build upon progressive innovation including the fact that the region currently generates more than 99 percent of its electricity using renewable sources.

The CIID Studio will be based in the neighborhood of Barrio Escalante and we’re working directly with architects at Gensler to create an amazing learning environment. We will publish some images of how it will look soon. It’s being designed specifically around the needs of our collaborative, hands-on approach education including the digital fabrication lab which is intrinsic to the work we do.
