The growth of new urban landscapes has determined a remarkable change in the organisation of the space: it is no longer the concentrated city, but it is the territory, the landscape, the container of everything. This new model of contemporary city can be assimilated to an archipelago where each unit has its own connotation, but where the social values as well as the activity are strictly connected with the relations existing with the other units.
The Master’s objective is to enable professionals to manage complex urban, architectural and territorial issues, by using innovative analysis tools and design methods on different levels with a particular stress on planning, landscape design, environmental sustainability and renewable energy.
The final goal is to provide an adequate training to professionals playing a role in the process of Urban and Architecture transformation and development.
The program includes an internship in a company working in the disciplinary field.
Candidates holding a first-level academic diploma or BA degree, or about to graduate and with a knowledge of the English language (IELTS 5.0 academic or equivalent certificate). The program is addressed to candidates with a curriculum in urban planning and/or architecture, as well as those who have a degree in economics, humanities, social sciences and communication, or other disciplines related to the program’s field of study.
