Architecture for Exhibition - Work with David Chipperfield and National Geographic


After the success of its first edition in cooperation with Musei Ferrari, YACademy's course in ARCHITECTURE FOR EXHIBITION is back with an enriched panel of lecturers and opportunities with international firms with the likes of DAVID CHIPPERFIELD ARCHITECTS, ALL DESIGN, ZAHA HADID ARCHITECTS. During the course, the students will work on a real design project for National Geographic supervised by a leading architect at David Chipperfield Architects.


Architecture has always played a key role in exhibition. Museums, exhibitions and expositions are not only a cultural offer, but are defined by space, by an exhibition itinerary that is able to surprise and fascinate the visitor who is drawn inside an active and inspiring experience.

For exhibition, architecture is as fundamental as works of art, collections and artifacts and their contents. The “Architecture for Exhibition” course has been created on these premises: its aim is to train professional designers who are able to materialize diverse artistic and museum experiences, enhancing the always-different story behind each cultural proposal. The students will acquire new skills in exhibition design and will move in a very prestigious environment – culture – which nowadays registers an increasing demand by the most critical and exclusive customers.

The students will focus on preservation practices, lighting techniques and perception psychology to deepen their knowledge on technical practices to adopt in an exhibition design.


Through the workshop, students will be provided with a unique opportunity to work with National Geographic on the design of a setting up at Palazzo Blu in Pisa. They will contribute to the narration of the story of the exploration of the seas that has been inspiring the most engaging adventures and discoveries of mankind for centuries.


At the end of the lessons, YACademy’s placement office will guarantee each student an internship/collaboration offer in one of the professional firms relevant to the course topic:
