Field of Study

We believe that architecture is an intellectual construction of ideas tied to its socio-economic and political context. Architectural production needs to be alert and inquisitive, while at the same time innovative, inventive, and critical. Consequently, we educate and encourage our students to experiment with ideas through research, testing their projects’ credibility and viability through implementation in practice. If you are interested in architecture as a domain in which you exercise your intellectual capacity and tirelessly pursue arguments for a better world, where you insist on making a difference in how we inhabit the environment and are interested in dialogue and debate, the IKA at the Academy is the right choice. We are looking for the best students who are interested in investing in the future of architecture.
