L’École de design’s studio in São Paulo.
The Brazil Studio is L’École de design Nantes Atlantique’s third international studio after China and India.
A member of the BRICS group, Brazil is a country the size of a continent which is becoming increasingly international, offering a host of cultural and career opportunities. It is in São Paulo, the biggest city in the southern hemisphere, that L’École de design decided to set up the Brazil Studio in 2017.
A cross-cultural program in partnership with MacKenzie University
In partnership with the Mackenzie Presbyterian University, the Studio offers a cross-cultural program in the heart of São Paulo in the district of Higienopolis.
Founded in 1868 and boasting 11 faculties and 39 000 students spread over 3 campuses across the country, the Mackenzie Presbyterian University is a veritable institution. This partnership takes the form of a double degree. The Double Degree Program between the Specialized Course in Transcultural Design from the Mackenzie Presbyterian University and the International Design Strategy MDes program from L’École de design seeks to broaden the students’ training and enable a cultural exchange between the two countries. It facilitates the adoption of multiple visions of design, for a practical application of this knowledge. This approach allows the development of solutions to respond to problems rooted in the local context.
