IED Barcelona teaches all its courses at two seats, Point One and Point Two, both located in the Gracia neighbourhood.
A seat of more than 5,000 m2 inaugurated in 2011. The building, conceived by the studio Franconi González Architects in collaboration with ProA Solutions studio, is the result after reforming and restoring a former textile factory of Gràcia, a neighbourhood with a strong personality and a long industrial tradition.
The new Higher School of Design is composed of four floors where values and benefits of Design for All are integrated with the aim of stimulating creative experimentation and dialogue between students and different disciplines. The building gives priority to open and flexible spaces, distributed over the first and second floor, which facilitate intervention and collective work. The rest of the building houses classrooms and workshops, adapted to the different training areas of Fashion, Design, Visual Communication and Management for Creative Industries. Some of its spaces, such as the Aula Magna and the Open Space, are also devoted to conferences and events.

An environment dedicated to investigating the link between technology and humanity with design as a central pillar, located 400 metres from the main facility. A total of 2,000 square metres distributed across seven floors that include flexible and dynamic classrooms and invite the use of creative methodologies that generate innovation.
An environment that opens itself up to the promotion of soft skills, competences inherent in human beings, such as creativity, the ability to solve complex problems, new forms of leadership, team management and critical thinking; as well as to experimentation through projects closely linked to the city.
The architectural remodeling of the space was carried out by Franconi Architects, the same studio that worked on IED Point One in 2011.
