What you will learn

This programme sets itself apart from other architecture programmes in the diversity of directions available. Students can choose from a range of studios each with a different focus from conceptual to concrete, from technical to theoretical and from building to city scales. Each studio combines teaching by academics and practitioners from leading architectural firms, including Kees Kaan, Winy Maas and Dick van Gameren.

Students develop an independent and academic attitude and are given the opportunity to design their own projects in the speciality of their choice, supported by an excellent infrastructure of model-making facilities, studio spaces and frequent excursions, workshops and seminars.
