Master of Architecture

Welcome on the blog of the (English taught) Master of Architecture of the Faculty of Architecture. With this blog we want to show and share the results of our education and nurture the process of coming-to-understand. You will find here news on events, calls, lectures related to the programme, but also the outcomes of our studios …

The design studio landscape is constructed out of 4 (+1) engagements: Urban Cultures, Craftsmanship, Legacy, Mediating Tactics and the Brussels Way. Every master studio is related to one of these engagements. Lectures and an exhibitions will be organised in the context of every engagement. These engagements are organized across our two campuses.

General info on the program and the engagements can be found on our faculty website. Check the acamedic calendar here.
