The Atelier Campus educational programme
Since January 2018, the School offers an original immersive program aiming to raise the students awareness to the excellence know how of french crafsmenship, both traditionnal and contemporary, applied to interior architecture and design.
From 2018 to 2021, the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation was a founder sponsor of this programme.
Atelier Campus aims to give each of the school’s 400 students, from years 1 to 5, a real ability to see, understand and experience 10 areas of expertise (2 per year), throughout their five-year course, through a material-based approach combining tradition, innovation and technology.
This approach is put into practice every year at some twenty workshops, Living Heritage Companies (EPV), factories and cultural institutions in France.
The one- to two-day immersive modules, run by teachers, enable the 400 students enrolled in the scheme (which is split into three sessions in October, January and March) to understand the capacities and limitations of a material, as well as the originality and uniqueness of the process in which it is put to use.
