Discover Biodigital Architecture

We offer you the chance to take part in the first architecture programme that explores the subject from a biological and digital perspective. An avant-garde syllabus and a new, 21st-century concept at your fingertips.

You will have the opportunity to use state-of-the-art technology with new production possibilities. And a whole new world of tools will open up to you, enhancing your professional qualifications and job skills.

Are you ready to see the possibilities awaiting you in the field of biodigital architecture?

Why choose Biodigital Architecture?

  1. Innovative education: Experiment with genetic-driven software, evolutionary processes, emerging systems and scripting.
  2. New vision of cybernetic-digital and environmental processes: Explore concepts such as bio-learning and morphogenesis.
  3. International approach and premier academic staff: Learn with an international teaching body which has made significant contributions to this new cutting-edge field of biodigital architecture. 

About the master's degree

UIC Barcelona's Master's Degree in Biodigital Architecture is a pioneering programme of the ESARQ - School of Architecture at UIC Barcelona that combines architecture, biology and new digital trends. Since the year 2000 this programme has offered a unique approach to architecture from a biological and digital perspective.

The teaching programme establishes points of contact between new cybernetic-digital and ecological-environmental techniques. It incorporates experimental concepts, methods and works that use genetic-driven software, evolutionary processes, emerging systems, algorithms, parametric models and scripting. An innovative view of architecture that draws from areas such as genetic versus generative, natural versus digital and the impact of new biologies.

An avant-garde architecture and design programme that integrates the latest developments in conceptualisation and projection technology: Data-Driven Production, CNC numerical control machines, 3D printers... In short, a non-standard form of architecture that applies and promotes the genetic and digital principles of variation, mutation and hybridisation.

Prospective students

If you have a university degree in Architecture, Engineering, Fine Arts, Design, Landscaping, Biology or Genetics, this is the right master's degree for you. No previous specialised knowledge of cybernetics or ecology is required.

Job Opportunities

Architecture, Engineering, Design, Art, Teaching and Research.

The combination of advanced digital technology applied to architecture and biological knowledge will open up a new, as of yet untapped market. 

Academic accreditation

University Master's Degree (official), which enables you to undertake doctoral studies.

Facilities

Digital manufacturing laboratory and genetics laboratory.

Admission criteria

In addition to meeting the legal requirements described in the access routes, the Office of Admissions will highly value:

  1. Applications that show sufficient prior training
  2. Transcripts from previous studies
  3. Transferred credits
  4. Descriptions of relevant work experience

Priority will be given to candidates who have completed studies in engineering (preferably industrial engineering) or business management.

Reservation and enrolment

Once accepted, you must pay 20% of the full cost of the master's degree in order to reserve a place

You must pay the remaining 80% in one lump sum once enrolment is complete.
