Context specialisation

Context specialisation

Architecture in Context is a specialisation within the Master of Architecture that focuses on the scale between architecture and urban design/landscape.

This is about designing building ensembles and their direct surroundings. This involves both landscape and urban environments.

Several scales

The specialisation Context responds to the changing role of the spatial designer. Architectural issues and the type of commissions received are changing. It is becoming increasingly necessary to work on a larger scale as well as work in and with existing buildings. The goal of the specialisation Context is to provide architects with research and design skills on a large scale and to be better able to tackle current social issues.


In the first three academic years, you will follow programme components that will familiarise you with the Context approach. With the graduation project in the fourth year, you can opt for the Context specialisation. You graduation assignment will then have a clear Context theme.
