The academic programme is based upon international experience in architectural education and unique for Ukraine. The Programme provides an opportunity to acquire basic competences in architecture and design by way of continuous practice and studio-based design of one’s own projects approximated to the real architectural practice.
Is an interactive mode of training, with on-going consultations by tutors and experts aimed at solving complex design tasks through group work and individual assignments.
Are intensive practice-oriented seminars involving Ukrainian and international experts, architects and researchers.
Send students and tutors on field trips to specific localities or objects with the aim of research or survey.
The thematic activities that enrich the program, raise new issues and introduce students to an international network of experts.
Every summer, students must complete a 6-weeks internship.
The Studios engage students in individual and group work focusing on research, architectural and urban-planning projects guided by experienced Ukrainian and international tutors. Each workshop deals with a specific topic; the students do individual or group work to design projects of various scales.
Each Studio offers an opportunity to implement the most creative ideas in an open collaborative environment, which, from the very start, stimulates innovation, experiment, and exchange of knowledge.
The Technical Block teachers to design space by integrating their knowledge of constructions and materials. The training emphasizes economic and purposeful use of materials depending on the architectural intention. The students learn to work in a practical way, independently, and with self-criticism.
The Technical Block aims at giving a grasp of the essence of materials, construction typology and project complexity with regard to the constructive aspect. After completing the Block, the students will be able to plan independent strategies for their design process and project particulars using local and hi-tech materials, to calculate the project budget, and to work with the relevant construction regulations.
Humanities Block introduces the students to the broader urban and social context, which shapes the work of an architect. The Unit includes lecture courses in the history and the theory of architecture and urbanism, analysis and research of space/behavior interaction and offers the students elements of sociology and urban anthropology. Students will learn how to conduct their own research, integrate ideas, write their own texts and participate in discussions.
The Skills Block trains the students to implement their project ideas, raises tactical issues, stimulates better self-organization and teamwork, teaches time-management, and improves efficiency. During the training, the students master a set of applicable up-to-date design tools and methods. In this Unit, the students learn to think and design using various architectural tools. The students start with the techniques of sketching, drawing, modeling and prototyping and continue with the cutting-edge technologies: BIM, cloud services, programming, generative and additive design, virtual and augmented reality, 3D modeling and 3D printing, as well as practical work with up-to-date equipment in the workshop.
The course brings together architecture, art, and culture. It provides the students with a fundamental set of skills to analyse and comprehend architectural forms.
During the course of study, twice a year, the students have traineeships in architectural offices of Ukraine and Europe, the Lab of the Kharkiv School of Architecture, leading research institutions, municipal bodies, and civil society organizations. During their traineeship, the students work with real-life cases of designing architectural objects and transforming cities. The students work within the local and the global contexts and search for new material incarnation of the space around them. They learn from well-known practitioners of architecture, curators, engineers, and outstanding researchers and theorists of today.
After graduating (3.5 years), the alumni/ae will be offered an opportunity of internship at well-known architectural offices of the partners and tutors of the Kharkiv School of Architecture.
