180 ECTS / 6 Semesters
Teaching language: English
The architectural study at the Angewandte is offered only as a Master Program that takes 6 semesters and finishes with a MArch; teaching language is English.
The central artistic subject is taught in three Design Studios, each with its own specific focus under the direction of renowned architects. The studios focus on the development of conceptual, practical and critical skills and aim to create compelling and future-orientated architecture — within all of its various facets, scales and contexts. Around the central artistic subject, education within the expertise fields of Architectural Science, Theory and Instrumentarium is organized and understood as an integral component and essential extension of design practice.
The integration of technical departments (Building Construction, Energy Design, Structural Design) offers students the opportunity to develop and deepen constructive and structural understanding and technical knowledge while working on their individual projects. In addition, the department of Digital Methods (Digital Production, Digital Simulation) — with its own in-house machinery that is constantly adapted to changing digital developments — provides the framework for acquiring two- and three-dimensional visualization and model-ling techniques, as well as expertise in digital analysis and simulation techniques. Discursive, interdisciplinary and practice-oriented contextualization, as well as theoretical, scientific and artistic reflection are offered in the fields of Theory of Architecture, History of Architecture and Urban and Social Strategies ([applied] Foreign Affairs, Special Topics in Architecture, Urban Strategies).
Architectural design is taught in 3 studios; each with its own focus.
