Cities, territories, rural and urban systems make up the built fabric that connects people and places. This milieu is constantly shifting due to geopolitical and cultural trends; perceiving it and changing it is a complicated undertaking. Change comes about thanks to strategies that transform the landscape, methodologies that regenerate urban areas, and design concepts that delineate public and private spaces. Architectural and urban design offer a means of envisioning possible futures and potential new ecosystems that have their roots in theoretical research and dig into the many facets of design.
The Master in Urban Vision & Architectural Design supports students as they develop relevant creative, intellectual and technical skills through work in the architectural design sector. Using analysis of the landscape and of urban and rural settings as a springboard for studying society, students will discover a wide array of design-based strategies as they explore different architectural approaches and develop solutions that address the needs of citizens and their culture, commerce, interrelations and movement.
Furthermore, students will learn flexible and ingenious methodologies that they can apply to their work, to their critique of design and to the communication of their final landscape, urban, rural and architectural design proposals.
The programme is directed at candidates who have a first-level degree or professional experience in architecture, urban planning, landscape design, civil engineering or equivalent fields. The programme is also open to candidates who hold a degree or diploma in different disciplines. Furthermore, they must be willing to carry out in-depth research into the programme’s subject areas and have an impressive portfolio.
Students will develop a personal critical vantage point to address and ground their professional goals. Embark on professional paths in design, architecture and engineering firms, local development agencies, urban planning departments, real estate and construction companies.Discover more here
