This master's programme explores sustainable architecture in a holistic way including cultural, social and economic sustainability.
In the programme we investigate and design urban environments and contextual building structures. Architectural space and the reprogramming of existing buildings and environments in terms of density, use, texture and spatial qualities are the main focuses of investigations. The development of new constructions in cooperation with industry and the development of innovative strategies of sustainability are important part of the education programs and supplement a theoretical basis.
Study language is English.
