2023 degrees

Let’s share the vision of 88 young creators on the world.

Following a demanding five-year program, 88 students are graduating this year with a degree in interior architecture and design from Camondo School.

Their projects reflect the unique perspective of young creators on the world. Once again, the range of topics covered is broad, reflecting the complexity of the changing world.

These topics include living together, the relationship to the territory, history, housing, and the link between craftsmanship and design.

Thank you to the students for opening up new paths for us and to the teachers for accompanying each of them in their educational journey.

Michèle Dard,

Principal of the Ecole Camondo

Camondo School

The Ecole Camondo is affiliated with the institution Les Arts Décoratifs, comprising the MAD, Musée des Arts Décoratifs, the Musée Nissim de Camondo and the workshops of the Carrousel and the Ecole Camondo.

It trains interior architects and designers in Paris and Toulon and awards a state-approved degree equivalent to master’s level. Over a 5-year course, teaching spans the wide spectrum of professions covered by these disciplines, at the intersection of art, economics, technology and social and environmental practices.

The Ecole Camondo, be it in Paris or in Toulon, welcomes its students far beyond the physical spaces of each of these two sites, into a vast network, a constellation of academic partners, businesses or institutions, expertise and thought.

The Board of Examiners

A degree in interior design is achieved through the special relationship that is established between teachers and students. A relationship of collaboration, trust and discussion that builds from one session to the next in the unique setting of tutorials: guidance provided by eight set-subject teachers, five free-subject teachers and five dissertation teachers. Some are architects, designers, scenographers or interior designers; others are theoreticians, writers or historians of architecture and design; and some work in the grey areas between definitions and cannot be categorised. All of them share a passion for passing on knowledge; they do everything in their power to guide their future peers through to completion of a course, with the award of a degree, the result of everyone’s dedication and efforts. In addition, there are professionals, experts, specialists, those you might call externally qualified figures, who are just as involved when it comes time for oral presentations. They provide a discerning, fresh perspective, on the results of long months of work. They are professionals of architecture and design, teacher-researchers, experts involved in the world of creation or members of the institution chosen for the purposes of exploration for the 2018 set subject: journalists and management in the Le Monde group. This great team makes up the board of examiners. Drawing on the diversity and complementarity of its members, the board receives, assesses and approves the work, not of one year, but of an entire five year-long course. And as each board has its own personality, you might say that this one was demanding and critical; in short, it was an excellent board. We thank all its members.


Three ways of interpreting the night

The students approached this subject by developing one of the three approaches proposed by the school:

  • Scenography: The Disco exhibition at the Philharmonie de Paris.
  • Spaces for tomorrow: The interior architecture and design of the outdoor spaces of the Trabendo in Paris.
  • New ensembles: The design of a piece of furniture or object that is energy efficient and carbon-neutral, designed to soothe domestic insomnia.

The imposed diploma subject is defended in front of a jury composed of teachers and external figures, experts in their field.

The defense takes the form of a projection enhanced by various elements (films, models, performances, etc.) to facilitate the understanding of the project, arouse curiosity, stimulate discussion, and gain the jury’s approval.

(Re)thinking the utopia of collective housing

To mark the 70th anniversary of the Cité Radieuse in Marseille, commissioned from architect Le Corbusier by the Minister of Reconstruction and Urban Planning as part of France’s post-war construction program, the Ecole Camondo Méditerranée, in partnership with Architecture de Collection, set out to reinterpret the collective uses of this emblematic building.

The students are tasked with rethinking the activities and shared spaces of this exceptional building, experimenting with original interior architecture projects, and giving contemporary life to the original ambitions. With its indoor and outdoor common spaces, the Unité d’Habitation can become a true “playground” for exploring, understanding, evaluating, analyzing, questioning, putting into perspective, and designing projects that reweave links, recreate activities, reactivate places to accommodate timeless or prospective uses.

Degrees at the école Camondo cover three main areas of study: Set design, Spaces for tomorrow, New interior designers and underpinning seven themes: environmentally-friendly transition, transforming what exists, towards the outer world, societal issues – social commitment, scenography (ies), expertise new craftsmanship, care.

Embracing a free subject requires students to define an area, identify an issue, find a sponsor, come up with a programme, list limitations, implement a method and develop a project, keeping all aspects under control, while reducing any difficulties, whether we are talking about furniture, objects, spaces, uses or all of the above, anticipating every detail of the materials used. All challenges and approaches, from those who seek and experiment, those who build within the existing framework and those who stage live performing arts to those who invent the services of tomorrow.

These subjects are often associated with work constructing a well-founded, documented, critical and self-aware rhetoric that each student had to develop in writing their dissertation. It is patient, year-long work also culminating in the production of a written document, quite often an artefact in its own right, the quality of its layout rivalling the pertinence of its contents.

Work that is the crowning achievement of five years of study, the legitimate imprint left by five years of work, sharing and creation?; for every student, every year, from every class.
