Master of Science in European Architecture

Campus 2 years September 2017 Estonia Tallinn

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. [+]

- Degree awarded: Double Degree, Master of Science (MSc) of European Architecture (TUT, Tallinn) with Master in Architecture (UAL, Lisbon) - Workload: 120 ECTS - Language of instruction: English - Pre-Requisites: Bachelor's degree or equivalent in Architecture or related studies (Urban studies, Engineering), portfolio, curriculum vitae with details about the academic and occupational career, motivation letter, interview via Skype/telephone International Education 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. Rethinking European Cities Architectural practice has to deal with complex problems today. The tremendous transformation of the European city requires individuals who are able to perceive things in association, as team-generalists. What are relevant fields today of re-thinking cities beyond the limits of growth? How do phenomena such as de-industrialization, touristification or the never-ending urban sprawl affect architect’s profession? And: How do we accumulate architectural knowledge and generate site specific solutions in a socially responsible mind-set, together with students, professors and local experts? 11 Workshops at 6 Universities + 1 Master’s Thesis 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. Professional skills 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. Key features INTENSIVE GROUP & TEAM WORK Professors from all participating universities work together with a small group of max. 15-25 international postgraduate students during the two years. The international group of students follows the workshop sequence at 6 +2 changing places at the participating universities always together. The professors of all participating universities meet regularly within the in-between-colloquium, the final master’s thesis cooperation and Skype meetings to accompany the quality development. SITE SPECIFIC PROBLEMS WITH LOCAL EXPERTS The teaching is realized on topics of 8 different problems / sites, defined by each responsible professor from each of the eight participating universities or institutions in cooperation with local lecturers, researchers and governors. WORKSHOP RESEARCH, PROJECT ORIENTED Each responsible professor defines one site-specific research focus and relevant urban question, to work on in the study programme. The workshop series of each academic rotation takes place as cumulative research of the university, of the professor. RESEARCH THROUGH DESIGN The cooperation takes place via research through design, the contemporary term of traditional research-oriented and studio-based architectural project work via workshops. RESEARCH ABOUT DESIGN Three consecutive Design Reflection workshops serve to reflect positions, approaches and processes, to „design the design processes“, and to evaluate and exchange the results of the programme between professors, students and alumni. COOPERATION OF INTERNATIONAL AND LOCAL STUDENTS The students of the international group work in cooperation with the on-site students of each university and in dialogue with professors and guest lecturers of the country within the frame of the workshop at each university. KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER The exchange of the results, the knowledge transfer, takes place after each workshop in public exhibitions, with guest teaching and critics, by regular round tables and by yearly conferences of all participants, students and professors (Platform of European Architecture Dialogue). Future career options 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 multidisciplinary 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. The education is interdisciplinary and project-oriented. The students will gain an understanding of multiple architectural design tools, intercultural communications skills and artistic and scientific methods to resolve complex tasks of the city and region of today. The generalist architectural research and the intercultural dialogue with the international expert network support the strengthening of socially responsible individuals. They will have the opportunity to focus an international career as important leaders in architectural production and research, the formulation of architectural policy or urban development. [-]
