Next to an intensified involvement with architecture, the Master program provides the possibility to develop a specific profile within architecture. We offer a critical practical and theoretical engagement with architecture and spatial development in the areas Architecture|Concepts and Design, Architecture|Urbanistics, Architecture|schoolSPACEculture, and Architecture|BASEhabitat. The Master program architecture is a development laboratory, which spans across the named areas and from which courses and projects can be selected. A comprehensive analysis of tasks, experimenting with and testing of construction, form and function, a high degree of social responsibility and artistic quality, as well as the building of prototypes, 1:1 interventions, and actual construction and building projects are central elements. International awards earned by design projects and master theses highlight and acknowledge these competences (World Energy Globe, Aga-Khan-Architecture Award Bangladesh, First prize “Just Jerusalem” MIT)
The University of Art and Design Linz offers a new branch of study within the architecture master from Oktober 2018. Its focus lies on socially just, ecologically and economically responsible architecture and spatial development in a global context. Central elements of the program are planning, designing and building, mainly with renewable building materials, such as earth and bamboo, and cooperation with partner-NGOs and local communities. The master combines lectures from classical architecture education with specific offers from BASEhabitat and ends with the final degree ‘Master of Architecture’.
