DescriptionThe 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.

For the 2014-15 academic year, the city of choice is Chittagong, Bangladesh. This means that a 2 to 3-week mandatory tour is part of the programme. 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.
