Context specialisation

Context specialisation

In the fourth year of the Architecture master's programme, you can choose the Context specialisation – a topical subject, because context is increasingly on the agenda.

This will address public safety, for example: how do you make allowance for issues such as danger, nuisance and other forms of insecurity in your designs? The decline in the population of the countryside is another context to which you will need to give due account in a design.

Objective

The Context specialisation reflects the changing role of the spatial designer. Architectural issues and the type of commissions are changing. It is becoming more and more necessary to work at the larger scale level, in and with existing buildings. The purpose of the Context specialisation is to train architects in research and design skills in context-rich environments and for current social issues.
