Studying architecture at Università Iuav di Venezia means entering a university with design process at the core of the whole educational experience. Venice is the place where to enjoy a unique study experience while gaining inspiration for future career steps. A long tradition connects Venice to Università Iuav di Venezia. A tradition of masters, from Carlo Scarpa to Aldo Rossi, who saw in this city the power to transmit the aspiration to beauty. Iuav responds to the needs of a constantly evolving professional world: at all levels to design means to be able to interpret places, know their history, coordinate different disciplinary competencies.
This study programme explores crucial issues in architecture, city and territory, highly specialised contemporary projects that concern the human, built and spontaneous landscape.
The range of themes addressed includes territory, material innovation, management of sensitive areas (historical and modern), resilient design and strategic reconstruction issues, up to interior design.
The master’s degree in architecture is structured around three topics: conservation, sustainability and interiors. Students can choose to organise their studies around one of these topics or they can choose a flexible study plan, combining them according to their own interests, curiosity and attitudes.
The study of the topics mentioned above is concentrated in the first three semesters, while the fourth semester focuses more on the choice of graduation subject, intended as the development of a single topic of interest or as the further development of one of the integrated workshops.
The master’s degree in architecture can lead to architectural professions as recognised in Europe, naturally in the building and construction sectors, as well as at larger scales of intervention. It provides targeted and wide-ranging preparation to work within complex, multi-scalar scenarios, with a particular focus on contemporary issues. This study programme provides high-level professional training on the technical skills and responsibilities required in the European context, which increasingly address territorial conservation and the reuse and regeneration of the existing building stock.
