Welcome to KTH School of Architecture for the academic year 2013/2014.
The programme at the Advanced Level consists of two years of study, including your
Diploma Degree project, which is carried out during the last term, and after which
you may be awarded the degree of Master in Architecture or Master of Science with a
Major in Architecture, depending on whether you are enrolled in the five-year Degree Programme in Architecture or the two-year Master’s Programme in Architecture.
Our teaching at KTH is studio based, and we currently offer 10 different master studios, each of which provides a unique path through the programme. We genuinely hope that you will find the choices appealing and that one of the studios matches your direction of interest for the coming two-year period. A new feature this year is that the studios are numbered and devoted to a specific theme. The studio themes and course plans are introduced in this booklet and more thoroughly presented by the faculty on 2 September, 10.00-12.00 in the Red Tent.
Because the places in each studio are limited to 20-24 students, there is an annual selection procedure allowing you to list your preferences for the studios on offer. The programme administration then assigns places according to selection criteria that are presented beforehand. Please check the school’s website for all details and formal course requirements. Also please note that studios #9 and #10 will be offered only in the autumn term; they will include Diploma Degree students in the spring however. Fourth-year students who wish to enrol in studios #9 or #10 are therefore invited to choose another studio for the spring term.
The overall purpose of our studio structure at KTH is to ensure individual progression and individual deepening of knowledge, skill, and judgement within architecture and related knowledge areas. At this level of education, a student must demonstrate sufficient skills and abilities to complete and critically evaluate independently and with adequate methods architectural design projects. During the Advanced Level, an individual student completes six design courses in a studio (socalled Studio Projects), each providing an opportunity to apply and develop skills in varied application areas and tools to reflect on the learning process.
