Outstanding Retail Design by IE Professor Andrea Caruso Wins Top Prize

The Malababa flagship store in Madrid, designed by Ciszak Dalmas, was recently awarded the New York Times Magazine’s best retail project award 2018. Andrea Caruso, co-founder of Ciszak Dalmas, teaches in our school’s Bachelor in Design and the Master in Strategic Design of Spaces programs.
“As a result of this project that has won us T Magazine’s prize, I have learned something that I would recommend to my students: they should design their own materials, rather than picking them out of a catalogue, they should invent, build and work with their hands to make something new and special”
Congratulations Andrea and to your team!

Sudha studied the Master in Architectural Management and Design and she values the diversity of her classmates as a key aspect, both in terms of geography and experience, as it helped her to look at the architecture world from a different lens – a more holistic one!
"Our work is not restricted to designing a space,
but includes the way people experience these spaces at different points of time."
