The School offers the following two-year Master's programmes: 'Architecture in Urban Context', 'Architecture, Process and Project Development', 'Industrial Design in Architectural Contexts' and 'CITA studio:Computation in Architecture'.
MA: Architecture in Urban Context (study dep. 2)
The Master’s programme in architecture is based on the Danish tradition of holistic, social architecture with an emphasis on field work, self-study and scale-gliding.
Inner-city field work seeks to explore how local culture has manifested itself in different types of dwellings and everyday life as it unfolds in a particular city. By immersing oneself in self-study, the aspiring architect develops an independent viewpoint relevant to the field of architecture. Within the framework of scale-gliding, the student develops architectural coherence by means of simultaneous studies across various scale steps.
The studies encompass systematic usage of the workshop during all project phases, as well as regular reviews and critique sessions.
MA: Architecture, Process and Project Development (study dep. 3)
The Master’s programme consists of four semesters, which combine to meet the Study Department’s objective of graduates being able to function professionally in multi-faceted interplay with the world that surrounds the architectural profession. The first two semesters introduce two different networks, which together influence the architect’s possibilities of acting and creating top quality architecture. One of these is the city’s complex network, and the other is production networks based on the actual materiality. The third semester follows up on the core concepts of Process and Project Development – as an introduction to the graduation project.
- First semester: The City and Its Complex Programmes
- Second Semester: The Architecture of Material, the Material of Architecture
- Third semester: Process and Project Development
- Fourth semester: Diploma Project
MA: Industrial Design in Architectural Contexts (study dep. 11)
The Master’s Programme in design is based on Scandinavian design tradition and methodology of furniture- and industrial design, with emphasis on design of components within a spatial context:
- First semester: Mega design - design elements in landscape
- Second semester: Furniture 1:1
- Third semester: Design in urban space
- Fourth semester: Self-programming – Master’s project in the field of architectural design
The programme emphasizes collaboration with other educational programmes and corporate partners. Students alternate between drawing table-based instruction, lectures, self-study/study groups, and workshop phases.
MA: CITA studio: Computation in Architecture (CITA) The working methods of CITA.studio draw directly from CITA’s Practice-based Research methodology. This places particular emphasis on project-led inquiry conducted through tight iterative cycles of hypothesis, testing, experimenting and reflecting through production.
