Description

The programme Urbanism and Societal Change is based upon the ambitions a) to embed the architectural/urban project within the dynamic conditions of contemporary society, b) to couple research and design within the project process, and c) to train future architects as leading actors in the sustainable development of the built environment.

Profound societal transformations, ranging from economic to demographic shifts, and altered resource availability to climatic change indicate that we can no longer expect the future conditions of the discipline to be an extrapolation of the past. These emerging conditions challenge conventional understandings of urban spatial organization and the role of the architect and planner. In this context the capacity of architects to identify, understand and respond to these new conditions affecting the discipline becomes increasingly crucial.

About the Degree

The course is structured by four independent, yet mutually informing semesters. Each semester will be organized around the theme of a particular societal transformation, with an associated set of courses, lectures, and assignments.

Each theme articulates a starting point for the exploration of a wider and complex set of interrelated phenomena.

In addition, there is a minimum English language requirement for admission.
