Master's in Architecture in Europe

View Masters Programs in Architecture in Europe 2016/2017

Architecture

A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.

 

The process of creating a well-made structure entails a great deal more than just propping up four walls. Knowledge of architecture is needed in order to ensure that buildings meet predetermined desires and legal guidelines.

Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents. Comprising the western most point of Eurasia, Europe is usually divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas.

Campus Full time 12 months September 2017 Italy Milan

In the Master in Urban Vision & Architectural Design program, you will learn strategies for transforming a city, from private developments to public space. You will envision future urban and architectural scenarios, according to complex dynamics and evolving requirements. [+]

Envision. Adapt. Change. Cities are experimental laboratories where humans formulate and refine responses to our basic needs: for shelter, relationships, movement, commerce. In the Master in Urban Vision & Architectural Design program, you will learn strategies for transforming a city, from private developments to public space. You will envision future urban and architectural scenarios, according to complex dynamics and evolving requirements. Audience The program is designed for candidates with a first-level degree in urban planning and/or architecture, as well as those who have a first-level degree in economics, humanities, social sciences, communication, or other related disciplines. Outcome During this degree program, students will: Learn how to apply appropriate research and design methodologies to urban and architectural design projects Design projects from start to finish, using a systematic sequence of steps relating to form, structure, technology, and aesthetics. Conceive of, propose, and realize a research and design presentation at a professional level, selecting the best communication strategy and languages for a multicultural audience. Program In the Master in Urban Vision & Architectural Design program, you’ll learn to envision transformations of urban spaces. You’ll have a chance to propose innovative solutions to problems in the fields of contemporary architecture, landscape design, and urban planning. And you’ll come to understand the changing role of architects and urban designers in different contexts. The program is workshop-based, supported by seminars, lectures, tutorials, and fieldwork. Industry professionals, the course leader, and project leaders support students through individual coaching and project mentorship. The Master in Urban Vision & Architectural Design program has a unique structure among Domus Academy programs: It begins with two courses, followed by four workshops. It continues with the internship and concludes with a final master’s project. Courses In the courses, you will study critical research methods, design theory, strategic thinking, and historical and contemporary design practices—all within the broader context of urban and architectural design studies. You will then explore a broad range of methods, tools, and topics that define contemporary urban and architectural projects, examining the relationships between design practices and the cultures and contexts they serve. Workshops Guided by industry professionals and faculty project leaders, you will work in cooperation with leading companies on projects from concept to design, from micro to macro. You will also analyze your projects from an economic, marketing, social, and anthropological point of view. Some possible workshop challenges include the following: Develop a strategic vision for solving a specific urban issue, moving from a specific intervention to applications within a wider framework. Investigate the relationships between architecture and urban planning and related fields of study, such as product design, interaction design, and communication design. Experiment with cross-disciplinary languages, techniques, and modalities. Design parts of open spaces that are part of a natural or extra-urban context or that are placed in urban gaps. Critically evaluate the landscape elements that need to be maintained, re-designed, or regenerated; formulate a project proposal that considers spatial complexity, social and cultural implications, and environmental and energetic issues. Develop a proposal for an architectural intervention, taking into consideration the elements that make up the urban space around architecture, including physical, cultural, economic, and social factors. Final Project Working under the guidance of industry professionals if they choose, students must research and write a final report on a topic of their choice, optionally illustrated with 3D models. Students explore the role of their own work within the larger context of the field, apply the theories and methods they learned during their course of studies, and demonstrate their level of technical skill. Students present their final project to company representatives. Internship There is no better way for you to gain experience in your field than actually working in it. The internship is a chance for you to work onsite for a company or design studio in your field of interest—while applying all the strategies you learned in the classroom and in workshops. Alternatively, you can complete an intensive project in collaboration with a company on the Domus Academy campus. Either way, you’ll get an inside perspective on how your industry really works, and you can make important connections that will further your career. You complete your internship before your final project. 100% of our students participate in the internship, including non-EU students, who can extend their visas for up to one year to complete this portion of their studies.
