Ample space will be dedicated to the restart of the sector most affected by the epidemic emergency; the current situation will be analyzed and how to manage the post-emergency phase with an eye towards the future evolution of hotels and wellness spaces

The partnership between the university component and the world of companies and professions guarantees the quality of training through a practical theoretical approach, always updated, immediately usable in the profession.
The Course is structured in the first part (lectures), to transfer tools that can be immediately used in the profession. In the second part, (of project work) the technical aspects of the most innovative products of the leading companies in the reference market are analyzed, with the aim of comparing in the classroom all the players in the world of hospitality: managers, managers, designers and companies in the sector.

Didactics

Frequency

The course in “Hotel & Wellness Design Solutions” is divided into different days, each of which provides for the development of a theoretical part, which provides the basic tools and a part in which they are invited industry experts, manufacturers and designers, who present solutions and case studies in the field of hospitality and HO.RE.CA.
Depending on the pandemic situation, visits to companies, showrooms or design studios may be scheduled.
Depending on their time availability, professional interests and knowledge of the design programs, candidates can choose whether to participate in the theoretical lessons plus the final project work, in which to put into practice, in groups, the notions acquired, or just the theoretical lessons. (scheduled from 02 to 18 November 2021)
The first part of the course (frontal lessons) can be attended by operators of the sector, hoteliers and managers; the project work is dedicated to designers.
The choice will be communicated to the Training Office at the time of signing the contract for enrollment in the course.

Training objectives

The training objectives of the course are:

  • understand and manage the problems of designing a “complex machine” as an accommodation facility considering spaces, equipment and furnishings in a context where customers are increasingly attentive, prepared and demanding;
  • manage the design process from the definition of the project brief to the development of the concept up to the evaluation of the business plan, the construction costs and the marketing plan;
  • identify the dynamics that govern the relationship between client and designer and how to identify the drivers to generate a “performing” and successful structure.

Didactic Plan

The structure of the course
The course is developed in a theoretical-practical module of 68 hours of lectures and exercises and a final project work where the participants will be divided into groups and will independently carry out a project with scheduled revisions every other day for 44 hours that will allow students to express the design and creative skills acquired by comparing and testing oneself through a stimulating design challenge.

Educational tour
Depending on the pandemic situation, evening visits outside the canonical timetable of the Course, ie from 18:30 to 22:00, which are not included in the teaching plan or in the number of hours, may be carried out during the week in attendance. These visits will complete the educational path, are guided by the teachers of the course and have as their destination the visit to hotels, innovative spaces, spas and clubs.
The purpose of these visits is to directly investigate the characteristics, functions, design solutions and transformations in progress.
Participants will also be advised to visit itineraries of educational value to be carried out independently.

Contact with companies, the market and professional operators
The collaboration with specialized companies will allow participants to have a constant relationship with the realities operating in the sector. The research and application results developed in the final project work will be previewed to the Media and Academic Sponsors, and as part of any initiatives organized by POLI.design.
