Master in Architecture

The Master in Architecture is a two-year English-taught programme which combines both a traditional curriculum of architectural education and a profiled programme structured around three major themes: architecture, European urbanisation and globalisation.

The Master in Architecture educates future architects with specific additional skills in research and knowledge in the field of urban design particular to European urbanism and globalisation.

The Master in Architecture focuses on:

  • architectural and urban design on different scales in a European context, with an emphasis on the strategic aspects of design
  • architectural and urban research with architectural means focusing particularly on European urbanisation
  • research on the impact of globalisation on cities and regions, as well as on comparative analysis of typologies in architecture and urbanisation worldwide

The Master programme does not see architecture as a static discipline, but as a professional field where a multitude of interrelated actors constantly have to anticipate changes in the context they operate, may they be demographic, political, social, environmental, cultural or technological. Design goes hand in hand with research, and the principle of the master programme highlights the dialectical relationship between design by research and research by design.
