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.
In close collaboration with local communities, science and manufacturers, this Master course engages with architectural performance and the cultural impact of technology in our world.
We mediate our presence in our environment via technology, often disregarding the environmental and cultural 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.
