In 2008, PCA launched Collection, a research center dedicated to the dissemination and promotion of research in the fields of art and design. Under the direction of Dr. Brigitte Borja de Mozota, Collection operates a Design Observatory to evaluate the state of design research to develop innovation in pedagogy and proprietary research methods.
PCA has relationships with many of the greatest cultural institutions in Paris through which our students have exclusive access to extraordinary resources, internships, and research opportunities.
Projects / Conferences
Paris College of Art students gain real world experience and develop professional contacts through partnership projects with local industry and many arts organizations.
The research center’s journal, Collection, encourages the exchange of expertise between researchers and professionals through both articles and visual contributions.
PCA Press publishes the research journal Collection, that aims to link art & design education and research to professional practice, and some unique artist books and education manuals.
