The Master in Integrated Architectural Design is a one-year program offered by Universitat Ramon Llull within the La Salle School of Architecture (ETSALS) in Barcelona. [+]

Top Part time Masters in Urban Design in Europe. The Master in Integrated Architectural Design is a one-year program offered by Universitat Ramon Llull within the La Salle School of Architecture (ETSALS) in Barcelona. It is a post-professional degree intended for individuals who have completed a four-year undergraduate professional program in architecture or its equivalent.

Integrating within architectural design inputs from building technologies, environmental analysis, mapping practices, advanced diagramming, representational techniques, social studies, theoretical speculation, conceptualizing tools and so on, allows the program to foster innovation within the discipline. Aware of the need for grounded experimentation, architectural heteronomics thus promotes an architecture that can be shared and contested in order to continually advance into new territories. The program emphasizes an integrated approach to architectural design and research, resulting in a commitment to design excellence that demands not only the skillful manipulation of program and form, but also inspiration from a broad body of knowledge. The intersection between the subjects and the scale lines creates a matrix which provides a flexible structure for incorporating other postgraduate programs and specialized courses within the same framework, counting on the collaboration of specialists and other professionals in the discipline. Specifically, the program seeks to: Explore architectural design integrated within a broad body of knowledge Address architectural heteronomics as a central research horizon Engage... [-]
