MARBELLA DESIGN ACADEMY NEWS


We had the great pleasure today to host a photo portrait session by Carsten Ander, as part of his "Faces of Europe" project, at Mabella Design Academy.

"Faces for Europe" is a photographic but also cultural project initiated by the Dusselforf and Berlin based photographer. His mission is to take a thousand portraits of Europeans of different ethnicities and social backgrounds to then depict them all on equal terms, side by side.

A tribute to a peaceful co-existence, tolerance and shared values of Europe.

So what better place than Marbella Design Academy to come and take pictures of our students and staff.

Not only do we share the same values, but we also have students and staff from all over the world.

Carsten Ander had to spend a couple of hours with us in order to take our portraits.

He did say we will all be in his next book! We can't wait to see it!

Don't give up! 03/04/2020

Today we decided to repost a work by Carla, one of our Graphic Design & Media students, originally published on Instagram.

We thought it appropriate to share it with our Facebook community.

"A few days ago I saw a picture of a doctor who was fighting against Corona for so long that his mask had started to cut into his face. His name is Dr. Nicola Sgarbi and he says he is not a hero. And maybe he isn't - I firmly believe that all humanity is fundamentally good and wants to help each other even to the point of exhaustion - but his dedication is still amazing to me. I can't go into a hospital and help there, but what I can do is honor his effort by doing the thing I do best: Drawing. So, hero or not, he is now immortalized. And so is his message.

Don't give up. Never. "

Carla's project are on her instagram profile: https://www.instagram.com/letsbethebadguys/

And remember, #staysafe, #stayhome.

Malaga Day was celebrated in Monda on the 26th of April.

We did not want to miss this event, as it was a great opportunity for Marbella Design Academy to celebrate that Monda and the academy will soon be in the heart of the newly established 3rd Spanish national park.

It was also a very special day where the community rewarded several of the best Malaga citizens for their achievements.

To name only a few, a medal was awarded to Regino Hernández, winner of the snow board bronze medal at the last olympic winter games, and a special distinction of honor was attributed to Simon Manley, British Ambassador in Spain for his fantastic work on promoting Malaga and Andalusia.


Well deserved!

THE FIRST YEAR INTERIOR STUDENTS VISITING THE NEW ORCHIDARIUM PARK IN THE NEARBY TOWN OF ESTEPONA.  

The purpose of the visit was to analyze the site, as well as to explore the historical environment of Estepona, which the Interior Architect students, 1st year, would use to find the concept for a new exciting upcoming project. They have been asked to design a temporary installation, housing an art gallery and a restaurant, which will be located on one of the many green areas surrounding this contemporary iconic building.

The architecture and landscaping shown on the images, were highly inspiring and everyone enjoyed taking lots of photographs and drafting their first sketches.
