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