The School of Architecture, ARQPOLI, provides each student an opportunity to grow knowledgeable in the theoretical, technical, social, cultural, and practical aspects of the profession, and thus be able to enter and excel in the field. Towards such end, our balanced curriculum is both structured and flexible. It includes core professional courses, liberal arts, sciences, and mathematics, focusing on representational, verbal and written skills. The field of architecture requires the command of architectural design, theory, history, technology, structures, representation, and programmatic and pragmatic aspects related to practice.
The student’s understanding of Architecture, upon completion of the minimum graduation requirements, combines a broad social, cultural and technical foundation. Our program prepares students to face situations of considerable complexity, comprehensiveness and social responsibility, at the same time allowing for personal interests to mature in individually chosen fields. The curriculum integrates initiatives in Architectural Conservation, Sustainability, and Collaboration with the Community. Graduates of the program are thus expected to operate in a multidisciplinary approach to Architecture.
