Quasar Headquarters

In 2016 Quasar Institute for Advanced Design inaugurated a new facility in the heart of the historic center of Rome, located between Piazza Cavour and Castel Sant’Angelo. Surronded by the beauty landmarks of the eternal city, the structure designed to offer students and professors a perfect environment for studying, working, creating.

The spaces are characterized by a minimal, elegant and bright industrial style, which makes the Quasar headquarters a welcoming and stimulating place for designers and the community of creatives. However, as a living organism, the walls of the school can, if necessary, be transformed into exhibition spaces and host semi-permanent exhibitions that actively involve staff and young people.

A school-lab in Rome

The facilities of Quasar Institute for Advanced Design are the following: a well-stocked library that collects over 5000 volumes and many field magazines and journals; the brand new Q-LAB laboratory, inaugurated in 2019 and equipped with prototyping machines, pantographs, 3D printers and scanners, laser and UV engravers, Machine Tools; a complete photographic set and an assembly studio equipped for every type of educational or professional need; a large internal terrace, a meeting place for students and the center of many socializing events; classrooms equipped with latest generation computers and updated with the latest versions of the best software; areas for relax and refreshment, an added value for the students community.

As an institution that aims to train new generations of designers, it is crucial for us to live and work in a place that expresses the same passion, professionalism and ideals of beauty that we try to convey to our students.

Library: “SILVIA BENEDETTI de Cousandier”

Named after the late founder and creator (together with architect Benedetto Todaro) of Quasar Institute for Advanced Design, our library is one of the main architecture and design libraries in Rome and in Italy.

The library holds rare books and the main encyclopedias on art and design, other than generalist books on the culture and phenomenology of contemporary expression. The topics of the books range from aesthetics to art, from architecture to design, from landscape and garden design to interior design and furnishing, from graphics to visual communications.

Quasar Lab

Our Quasar Lab is a source of pride for us – a space where all ideas come to life.

How is that possible? It’s all thanks to our state-of-the-art 3D printers, which transform everything that was thought and designed into reality.

These jewels of cutting-edge technology make our Quasar Lab a unique space at the disposal of teachers and students alike.

Photo & Video Lab

Our photoset has all the tools you might need, and it’s perfect for every didactic and professional need.

A study to shoot and edit any kind of video.

This is our Photo & Video Lab, ready for anyone who seeks a space to work with professional tools in the right atmosphere.

Exactly like the Quasar Lab, this space, too, is open to students and Quasar teachers, but it can also be used by the public.

Terraces

tudents love our outdoor spaces!

Quasar’s ample terraces are for the private use and enjoyment of our students, and offer a space for a quiet, relaxing break.

These open spaces are also used for our events, with happy hours, cocktail parties, live performances and many other artistic and leisure activities.

The terraces of Quasar are a veritable extension of our extraordinary and unique headquarters!

Classrooms

Our classrooms are the cornerstone, the beating heart of our educational institution. Bright, modern, efficient and relaxing (thanks to their white colour), our classrooms are designed to make the life of the Quasar student’s as comfortable as possible.

All our classrooms have state-of-the-art computers with the most advanced softwares needed for our courses. Thanks to this, our students are able to focus on the class, and nothing else.

Quasar Coffee Point

Take a break in our Coffee Point!

Even a headquarters such as ours – harmonious, relaxing and completely student-oriented – requires a space suitable to take a break.

Even a simple coffee break here, at Quasar, becomes unique and high-quality – our distinctive features!
