About Architecture and Extreme Environments

This Master programme pursues to explore the intersection between architecture, technology, culture and environment. Through a site-specific approach, we aim to respond to present and future global challenges through 'research by design' and direct 'on-site involvement' in the form of active expeditions to remote world locations where prototypes are put to the test.

In close collaboration with local communities, science and manufacturers, this Master course engages with architectural performance, from component to building design, and the cultural impact of technology in our world through high-end design aesthetics.

We mediate our presence in our environment via design and technology, often disregarding the environmental impact. It is our intention to investigate the design potential in working with technology not only as a performance orientated design parameter, but also as a process charged with aesthetic potential and cultural implications with sustainable aims, from building scale all the way to detail.
