The mission of the Department of Architecture is to educate design professionals relevant to the metropolis of tomorrow by constructing an environment where general, architectural and urban issues are investigated in depth. While acquiring the fundamental skills and knowledge base of the discipline, students are taught to think critically about architecture, as a situated environmental and social practice, and to engage in debates about the opportunities and dilemmas presented to it by transformations in society, culture, technology, climate and materials.
