Program Description

The Paris School of Architecture is a post-graduate only school of architecture based in central Paris and offering courses taught in the English language.

The school offers a single post-graduate course in Architecture with three distinct pathways, for students who already hold an undergraduate degree from another institution.

For more information please visit www.parisarch.fr

Upon enrolment, we request that our students select one of the three following pathways:

  • Pavilion Pathway - (Design, Construction & On-site)
  • Design and Communication
  • Futurology & Disruptive Technology

Through the studio-led culture of the school, students will be taught as individuals, rather than in ‘units’, and the education that they receive will be bespoke to their needs.

The selection of a pathway allows the student to demonstrate which area of architecture they are most interested in developing, and while students of each of the three pathways will be taught together, their specialism will become apparent through the development of their studio project.

Students in the Pavilion pathway will be encouraged to design and produce tangible interventions, rather than a ‘paper’ project, so they may gain experience in the implementation of architectural designs.

The Design and Communication pathway will focus primarily on the development of architectural representation and the means of communication of complex ideas both to other Architects and lay people.

Students who select the Futurology & Disruptive Technology pathway will develop emerging technologies into potential products or enterprises in which study and extrapolation of these technologies can be formed into an architectural application.
