Large Scale Architecture and Urban Design

Large Scale Architecture and Urban Design

Large scale architecture investigates the relationship between building and the city.  This includes design of complex buildings and urban strategies.

Projects at this scale will involve many actors, and have a public presence that requires a high level of precision in argumentation and excecution.

Through critical readings of a political, cultural, social, economic, historic and physical context, the objective is to acquire consciousness and knowledge about the role of architecture in society.

The courses aim to develop new architectonic tools for cities in evolution. New programs and typologies form parts of a larger architectural discussion on the relevance of the projects in the city.

This field offers courses and research at bachelor- and masterlevel.
