The MSc in Architecture degree is a full time two year course focusing on applying a multitude of design and research methodologies and preparing students for the demands of the broad field of architecture and urban design. The Institute of Architecture and Planning at the University of Liechtenstein can look back on a tradition of more than half a century. This means that the Institute benefits from continuity and from a multifarious global network, which is reflected in the international composition of the student body.
In recent decades architectural teaching has undergone a radical shift from ‘mere’ building towards engagement with the economically, ecologically and socially relevant themes of sustainable building. The role of architecture today is increasingly seen in combination with the concept of planning. The term is associated with the totality of all the processes currently running in a given area, and their interaction with the environment. This entails a principal focus on the interface of spatial planning and sustainable economic and cultural effects.
The MSc will prepare students to meet the rapidly changing world of architecture and learn about these cultural effects. Students are given research projects to put their skills into practice. Some of the past projects include the Design Studio Schwarz in Iceland and Design Studio Droege which looked to build a sufficient City for Lake Constance. On the field trips or through the research each student will shape his or her personal point of view and find the appropriate architectural task. Through reflection concentration should be generated, both ‐ in thinking and in the architectural work.
