Letter from the Director
Dear Prospective Student,
To be an architect is to see possibility where other don’t, to imagine things differently, and to have the tools and the discipline to turn even the most outlandish ideas into tangible reality. To be an architect is to engage the world, and to change it. That’s why we’re here. And that’s what you’ll learn to do in the Architecture degree at IE University.
Our program will prepare you to think and act both globally and locally, and to see opportunities where others merely see crisis. Indeed, we see the current moment as an exciting one, as the beginning of a new way to practice architecture, and as an unprecedented moment for innovation in architecture education. We want to produce the next generation of leaders in architecture and design – those who will show us a range of paths out of or current crisis, suggesting new ideas for the future.
So, how do we do that? First, we give you the technical, creative, and entrepreneurial tools you’ll need to make a difference. Our Design Studio sequence will teach you to engage problems in the real world, and to propose new visions; our series of Experimentation Workshops will open you up to new modes of working, and new media; our Integration Workshops will introduce the technical complexity of the contemporary architectural project; our Fabrication Lab and sequence of digital coursework will give you hands-on experience, and out Alternative Practices semester will show you a range of different ways to apply your architecture training to the world around us.Read more
