Course Description

Course Profile

Architecture and Urban Planning is a new professional programme focused on the digital design and crucial aspects of Architecture for Society of Knowledge [ASK]. In part, it is remotely delivered over the Internet and requires a limited, one-semester residency period during its core program. It can be completed in 18 months and concludes with a Master of Architecture degree in the field of Architecture and Urban Planning. Students can investigate contemporary design practices as well as media and digital technologies relevant to the emerging 21st century city. Full EU tuition scholarships are available for the initial group of competitively admitted international students. ASK [Architecture for Society of Knowledge] is dedicated to those who wish to extend their practical understanding of contemporary architecture and urban planning. The program addresses digital media in design, prototyping with computer controlled machines, distributed design collaboration, and agendas for sustainable, intelligent building. At the same time, it reflects on architectural basics: cultural heritage, history and theory paradigms, social aspects of space creation, and education through interacting space. The ASK Program aims to equip young practicing architects with the formative experience required in:

  • active participation in the global architectural knowledge society, and critical interpretation of the creative aspects of design and design collaboration,
  • collaborative and interdisciplinary practice of architecture,
  • architectural research exploring new design technology and theory.
