In Fall 2013 Paris College of Art (PCA) will expand its campus with the opening of the PCA Design Center located in the 10th arrondissement.
Paris - Center of Europe
Paris College of Art allows you to gain access to the contemporary art world in Paris, including interactions with curators, artists and professionals in the cultural industries. Paris College of Art currently has two locations in Paris: PCA Studios in the 15th arrondissement – a typical Parisian neighborhood, just a short walk from the Eiffel Tower and the PCA Ateliers in the cosmopolitan and artistic neighborhood of the Bastille in the 11th arrondisement and in Fall 2013 will be adding a third: the PCA Design Center in the 10th arrondissement, a bustling neighborhood filled with theaters, performing arts studios, and the offices of many creative agencies.
PCA Design Center - Opening Fall 2013
The PCA Design Center will reunite all the academic departments under one roof. With an additional 2,550 fully air-conditioned square meters we will double our facilities including: an amphitheater able to seat 200, a new gallery space, student and faculty social spaces, a private landscaped courtyard, and many new light and airy classrooms with amazing views of Montmartre.
With this addition, students of Paris College of Art will have designated social/eating spaces, out-of-class workspace, and greater access to computer labs. Both faculty and students will benefit from new classroom facilities and the teaching staff will gain faculty lounge areas and workspace.
All will enjoy the neighborhood of the PCA Design Center, with its easy access to the textile stores of Montmartre, one of the city's best photo service stores just 170 meters from our front door, many cafes, traiteurs, and restaurants nearby.
While embracing the new with the addition of the PCA Design Center we will hold on to our past: the historic Parsons Paris rue Letellier building, our home for over 30 years will become PCA Studios hosting our 3D laboratory, photography studio and silver processes darkroom, print-making and textiles lab, studio classes as well as art studios for senior students. Referred to as a “creative labyrinth,” this campus is filled with sky-lit studios used for drawing, painting and sculpture that surround a central courtyard.
The PCA Ateliers, located in the vibrant and trendy 11th arrondissement, currently hosts the PCA Fashion Design department as well as the Atelier of Art.
