Cultural environments and urban transformation
The new studio at Aarhus School of Architecture will focus on cultural environments and urban transformation. It will be holistically oriented and combine a strategic approach, planning and architectural design. The studio will be based in cultural environments and the values and inherent characteristics of architectural heritage as a potential for transforming existing built environments.
“In the profession there is a great demand for architects with urban planning experience; and among architects there is a great desire to design and work at different levels of scales. We want to combine this in the new studio. I am convinced that the new studio and the four-year master will be a good route to employment for many of our graduates”, says Kristine Leth Juul, who is prorector at Aarhus School of Architecture.
The programme has been organised with an emphasis on project work and will develop students’ academic and professional profiles, design skills and their ability to rethink location-specific narratives and characteristics through architectural transformation strategies that activate the values and potentials of cultural environments within tourism, habitation, and culture.
“There is no requirement that the student’s employment must be precisely related to cultural environments and urban transformation. However, during the course, it will be possible for students to incorporate into teaching experience obtained from working in practice, if they wish to”, says Kristine Leth Juul.
The four-year master will create an interaction between teaching and practice which should give student a stronger foothold in the transition between studies and professional work.
The new studio will be offered for the first time in the autumn semester of 2019. More about Studio 1D.
