The new postgraduate programme is a unique and innovative approach to international architectural education: it combines the idea of the classical artist journey with the intensive, interdisciplinary and project-oriented workshop tradition and team-work, focusing on acute topics generating architectural knowledge and dialogue across greater Europe between cities as Tallinn, Lisbon, Helsinki, Berlin, Dessau, Ljubljana, Innsbruck and Haifa.

The two-year training is structured around a series of 8 project workshops + 3 reflective workshops at 6 different higher education institutions: Urban planning as well as architectural and artistic issues – open questions virulent to the cities & regions of the participating universities – will be examined at all scales; multi-dimensional planning processes, design and communication strategies constitute integral parts of a democratic culture of building to transform existing buildings and urban quarters with regard to ecological sustainability. Problems will be resolved in the context of cultural heritage and pre-existing structures.

Students will work together with local experts and professors and will be immersed in different approaches to research through design & design thinking, in order to experience the complexity of cultural attitudes toward architecture and urban design. The broader aim is the enrichment of the pan-European architectural discourse and a renewal of architecture education, thus reinforcing students’ range of experiences and sense of social responsibility, vision and capabilities – as necessary skills for a top leadership role in the professional field – within an international and interdisciplinary network.

Career opportunities

Architects work in collaboration, across disciplines and through experiment. The interdisciplinary Master’s Degree programme prepares students for the wide range of international professional requirements: Heterogeneous knowledge about design and research methods, about architecture history, typologies and construction are needed as well as a wide-range canon of multi-disciplinary knowledge about living cultures, social and political conditions of urban planning, the metropolitan society as source and client of spatial genesis – a prerequisite for the suitability of the responsible and reflective architect taking the task of a team generalist.

After completing their studies, the graduates are capable of independently designing, planning and implementing building tasks in different cultural and economic contexts, as well as developing, communicating or representing architectural and urban concepts or planning processes in international work contexts.
