The world of today is growing more globally interlinked and connected, thus offering new challenges for architecture. These challenges concern everything from the densification of cities and sustainability to threats related to extreme events and the environment. Lund University, located in the dynamic Copenhagen-Malmö region, is well known for its competence and knowledge and offers superb resources for studying these matters in a broader context. The programme combines best practice with advanced research, thus educating students to become highly skilled professionals who are competitive at an international level.
Teaching contains both theoretical and hands-on projects aiming to find future-focused solutions to real-world issues. The programme features international collaboration, as well as locally active professionals. The process of working/learning consists of a mixture of workshops, crits, tutorials with invited guests (both international and local) and longer projects that will be exhibited to a public audience.
The objectives of the Master’s programme in Architecture are:
- to offer a broad education in architecture with possible specialisation within three main fields (Advanced Architectural Design, Spatial Experiments, and Human Shelter/Urban Space).
- to provide students with the skills to manifest an internationally recognised capacity to act within a challenging but uncertain future related to globalisation and changing technology.
The programme consists of three specialisations: Advanced Architectural Design, Spatial Experiments, and Human Shelter/Urban Space.
After graduating from the programme, you will have the necessary skills to practice as an architect on a global market. You will be up-to-date regarding theory, practice and tools at an advanced level. Your competence will enable you to engage professionally in both private and public level. During the course of your studies, you will have the opportunity to meet practitioners from the local and regional scene, both to present your work in reviews and exhibitions, and get to know their work and culture through lectures and study visits. Our alumni often go on to jobs and internships both in the region, particularly Copenhagen, Malmö and Stockholm, and internationally. The future-focused nature of the programme will make you especially attractive on the market, by being an architect capable of finding innovative ways of approaching the projects of tomorrow.
