Master's degree programme in Architecture (01.09.2008)


The content of this course is closely related to the unit projects that typically include the design of buildings, their sitting, energy use, choice of construction, materials and processes, as well as the quality of their internal environment and micro-climate with a focus on the issues of sustainability and the performance of the building envelope.
Material Sciences offering the basis for construction of an intelligent building envelope.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the module each student should have the ability to demonstrate and/or work with:

  • Knowledge that covers and integrates specific principles and methods of material sciences as the basis for construction of an intelligent building envelope.
  • A critical understanding of the intellectual, aesthetic and tecnological content of self-selected buildings that supports architectural judgement.
  • Researched and critical evaluation of the briefing and performance of buildings.
  • A researched and integrated knowledge of material sciences, applicable in coherent design projects that express architectural intentions and considerations of a sustainable environment.
  • The ability to define what type of research is relevant, what questions to ask, and which formats to record the findings to best serve as a springboard to design decisions.
  • Execute complex defined and self-defined projects of research, development or investigation and identify and implement relevant outcomes.
  • Research and critical evaluation of how a strategic choice of construction, materials and environmental approaches can determine the character of an architectural design project.
  • Critically identify, define, conceptualise and analyse complex problems and issues relevant to contemporary discipline of architecture.
  • Communicate and articulate ideas and informations fluently in english language and work comprehensively in visual, oraland written forms.
  • Make formal presentations about specialist topics to informed audiences.
  • Exercise autonomy and initiative in carrying out set project briefs and self-directed programme of study.
  • Demonstrate ability to manage time and physicalresources in relation to set project briefs and self-direct programmes of study as an individual and a group member.
