Bachelor programme from any recognized university.
The two-year long post-graduate Master course of the Städelschule Architecture Class (SAC) is an educational programme engaging with advanced topics in architectural design. The programme aims to contribute to the general development of architecture through the advanced education of highly skilled designers within the field. In contributing to the general advance of architecture, SAC prepares its students for professional and/or academic careers by giving them the opportunity to experiment and research within a structured educational programme. Upon the successful completion of the two-year study, the candidates receive a post-graduate Master of Arts in advanced architectural design.
Each year, the programme engages a total of 20-30 students and pursues excellence through highly individualized and intense teaching and research settings. As a post-graduate programme,SAC offers training in design ecialisation and is structured to bring students and professionals with a prior degree in architecture further in their professional and academic standing. SAC offers an introduction to and training in advanced contemporary problems in architectural design where the innovative potential of the designer is seen to contribute to the social, cultural and economic development of the contemporary city.
SAC aims to equip each student with the know-how, technical expertise and intellectual abilities to further his or her career in an increasingly specialised, international and competitive environment. The programme gives its students a research based, executive ability to take on and process advanced design problems that reflect the complex conditions to which contemporary architecture must respond. These conditions include general technological developments, the direct and intense relations between socio-cultural structures and economic production, as much as architecture's own accrual of historical and instrumental intelligence. Cultural and social factors contribute to the ever-escalating complexity of designing buildings - a complexity that reflects the standards in Western international architecture as a body of theoretical and practical intelligence.
The core requirements are:
- DESIGN MODEL FORMULATION
- MATERIAL AND STRUCTURAL STUDY
- THEORY PAPER
- MATERIAL & STRUCTURAL THESIS
