Featured Article

KADK builds on strong traditions within the three, historically well-anchored schools - Architecture, Conservation and Design. The school strives towards the preservation of culture and nature, and the design of physical objects and environments to internationally recognised standards.

The education of KADK is based on a combination of theory and practice. A substantial part of the teaching takes place at the drawing board and in workshops, and in joint presentations and academic seminars in small units of teachers and students.

Many of KADK's teachers come directly from the business community and practice. For instance, the School of Architecture has approx. 120 and the School of Design approx. 80 parttime teachers each term who teach for a short or longer period of time in addition to their work in practice and in the business community.


In 2013, the School of Architecture was elected the second best school of architecture in Europe by Graduate-Architecture.com – only surpassed by the Architectural Association in London. 
In 2010, the School of Design was included on the worldfamous lifestyle magazine Monocle's top 5 list of future schools of design.

Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 5500 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website https://kadk.dk/en/programme/codesign

Description

Codesign and coproduction is rapidly spreading in e.g. product design, communications design and environmental design. Traditional design fields have to be re-thought and new venues for the designer are opening up as designers have to engage in open collaborations with a network of non-designers. We call this design profile, codesign.

For the codesigner research, sketching and making goes hand in hand. Working with generative prototyping, collaborative inquiries and sustained participation the codesigner takes part in a critical exploration of possible futures.

The MA-programme in Codesign combines an orientation towards research, with studio-based teaching and real life assignments with external partners.

Political Architecture: Critical Sustainability

Political Architecture: Critical Sustainability

Master (2 years) of Architecture, 120 ECTS
Architecture, design and visual arts

Institution The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts - Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation
Campus Copenhagen
Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 6000 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website https://kadk.dk/en/programme/political-architecture-critical-sustainability

Description

The master programme is designed to promote an architectural practice which critically explores the political issues that dominate in the fields of architecture and planning. Throughout the course, the main subject will be the near to omnipresent notion of sustainability. A catchphrase, a motto, a concern for survival, and an opportunity – sustainability is arguably today a designers’ dogma and creed.

You will be exposed to various integrated courses where scholarly work is weaved into traditional architectural exercises. Academic skills are acquired with a number of intense classes and will be integrated into the production of architectural projects. Throughout the programme, your work develops in a process of drawing-writing-thinking - each being as important as the other. You will learn to master co-evolutionary processes of architectural conception through a unique method that integrates academic and architectural modes of production. Upon completed studies, you will be well on the way to producing peer-reviewed academic articles as well as unique architectural propositions.

About the Degree

Prospective students should be aware that each year of study is devoted to a particular city, predominantly located in the global south.

This tour usually takes place in October-November and forms a common point of reference for the remaining academic year. All expenses are covered by the student, and therefore travel and group accommodation costs are kept as low as possible.

Admission    

Applicants with a bachelor degree in architecture or architectural studies from a nationally recognised school of architecture are eligible for admission.

In addition, there is a minimum English language requirement for admission. In 2015-16 the requirements are: TOEFL (paper-based) score 575, TOEFL (internet-based) score 90, IELTS score 6.5. 

Prospective students should also be aware  that language skills are expected at a level where you are able to read academic literature and engage freely in conversations in English.

Spatial Design, Perception and Detail

Spatial Design, Perception and Detail

Master (2 years) of Design, 120 ECTS
Architecture, design and visual arts

Institution The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts - Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation
Campus Copenhagen
Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 5500 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website https://kadk.dk/en/programme/spatial-design-perception-and-detail

Description

Perception, production and fittings of architectural spaces are in focus throughout this programme. You will have the opportunity to work with landscape, urban design, building and furniture design and master the art of designing and constructing interior and exterior spaces in detail. 

For a couple of generations, great Scandinavian architects such as Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Leverentz, Alvar Aalto, and Finn Juhl and Arne Jacobsen all combined an international outlook with a very local sensitivity for the context, materiality, light and colors of landscapes, buildings and furniture. This specific Nordic sensitivity came out of a culture of research and innovation combined with a strong sense of social responsibility. On one hand, an understanding of the many contexts of design, including the end-user's perception of spaces is of great importance. On the other, the professional knowledge of how to work consciously with light and sound, materials and color, proportion and representation must be both trained and critically examined.

Today, a very strong trend in Danish and international contemporary art and design are challenging convention with works which explore our understanding of both space and place. Artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Dorte Mandrup and Stig Lennart Andersson renew our curiosity and sense of delight. Inspired by them, you will study the conceptual space where the reality of construction meets poetic invention.  

About the Degree

This is a combined programme, in which both architect and design students work side-by-side.

  • climatic- environmental transformations (eg. weather weirding, sea level rise).    

The fourth semester will involve students’ self-identified societal transformations and self-programmed projects.
