Postgraduate Course of Studies in Architectural Design
This year's postgraduate curriculum intends to integrate all individual research and design production into a ‘Manual for Deserted City Centres’. The Manual offers alternative ideas for small scale DIY urbanism, in addition to precise descriptions of the kinds of architectural interventions that benefit the given, existing buildings. While its outlook is urbanity its operations are architectural. The curriculum aspires to the development of a critical discourse parallel to design operations, supported by theory seminars.
About the program
The Department of Architectural Engineers, of the University of Thessaly, organizes and operates a Postgraduate Studies’ Program (PSP), entitled “Architectural Design”. The purpose of the Program is the broadening of the field of architecture and design and the investigation of their relation with the theory, the art, the technology of the representations and the technologies of construction. These relations are investigated within a range of scales (the city, the buildings, the subjects, the landscape), and they are based on interdisciplinary perspectives.
The Postgraduate Specialization Diploma in Architectural Design, is awarded upon the completion of a joint program of studies, of a duration of three semesters, extending from October to December of the next academic year. The purpose of the Postgraduate Program is to offer high level postgraduate studies in Architectural Design. The Program features a modern perception of design that combines theoretical studies with the production of architectural projects, in architectural design workshops. The Program adopts periodically specific thematic frameworks concerning contemporary spatial approaches.
