Top Course Studies in Architecture

Architecture

Architecture is a concept that most people are familiar with, even if they do not understand everything that goes into designing a building or structure. In order to become an architect, students must complete classes, earn a degree, and become certified.

If you are wondering how professionals in this field complete their education before and after graduation, you should be asking, “What is a course in Architecture?” The simple answer is a course is a specialized way for student to get required instruction. Possible architecture courses include sustainable architecture, real estate development, sketchbook drawing workshops, and interior design. These classes are meant to supplement the student who already has a strong foundation in the basics.

It is helpful for even well-established architects to pursue additional coursework, even after becoming involved with a design firm. Courses sharpen their creativity and inventive nature while also allowing students to pursue new topics to stay on top of the competitive market.

If an architecture course is part of a four year degree, the cost may be reduced. However, solo courses may cost more or less, depending on where the student enrolls.

Taking a single course does not an architect make, yet these classes are still vital to the learning process as a whole. Such courses allow well-established designers to meet the expectations of their current employer or provide the leverage the person needs to negotiate a higher salary. The right courses also allow job seekers to find the position that fits their demands.

 

Perhaps the most convenient thing about individual courses is the capacity to be completed remotely via online learning opportunities. Combine on-campus and computer based classes to fit your schedule and get the additional education you need. Whether you are pursuing a four-year degree or want to bone up on interesting contemporary architectural concepts, you can find the coursework that is ideal for you online.

Best Course Studies in Architecture 2017. Summer University block 3: July 24th - August 17th, 2017 Course price: 1.850 Euros 18 hours of class sessions per week, 5 ECTS credit points Topic Berlin is growing. By the year 2030, there will be 250,000 more people living in the city than there are today. This will bring with it an increase in the demand for housing as well as in requirements for mobility, the adaptation of infrastructures and the availability of resources such as water, energy, data and building land. Like many major urban centres around the world, this means that Berlin is also facing a wide variety of challenges for the future: the growing city, the aging city or the city in the midst of structural change all require inter-disciplinary and inter-departmental approaches if solutions are to be found. The Smart City approach aims to find solutions to the ecological, social, economic and cultural challenges faced by Berlin through the use of intelligent technology. Berlin wishes to preserve – and as far as possible enhance – its appeal and its quality of life. (Excerpt from the „Smart City Strategy Berlin”, 2015) Target group Students with an interdisciplinary interest in urban planning, innovation and knowledge management, digital media & communications technologies, civic tech / engineering, sustainability studies, politics & governance, history.

Hybrid Space

A new interdisciplinary field of design, researching the transformations of architectural, urban/regional space of the emerging "information age", explores the dynamic interaction of architecture/urbanism and the space of mass media and communication networks. It develops scenarios for the interplay of public urban and public media space. The products of these alliances of urban/regional and media networks, of architectural and media space, are bastards: ambivalent spaces that are at the same time analog and digital, tactile and abstract, material and immaterial, expanding hyper-sensuality in the time- and placelessness of media flows. These hybrid spatial morphs act simultaneously in urban (local) and media (global) space and mediate between them, unfolding the undefined space between the local and the global, occupying the vacuum between local place and global space. Within the inversions of identity (communication), within the fluid ever-changing densities in the knitted networks, fused analogue/digital cultures are idensified. [-]

Best Course Studies in Architecture 2017. One course in two cities! The course examines the architecture and urbanism of two European cities (Barcelona and Almere) with a very different cultural and historical background. Barcelona was founded as a Roman city and has been growing through the ages; Almere is the youngest city in The Netherlands and has jumped straight into the future. But there is something they have in common: they both put innovation into perspective and have sustainability in the core business of their development. Dates and Schedule Week 1: from 06.07.2015 to 10.07.2015 Week 2: from 13.07.2015 to 17.07.2015 Course Level: Basic to Intermediate Credits: This course delivers 2.5 ECTS per stage + Certificate of Attendance The buildings and sites to be visited are an example of an efficient use of technology and energy saving. They are all part of the change in the architectural model that is contributing to improve the daily life of the citizens and the city services management. Barcelona has always been an important centre of business and culture and such traits can be traced in its urbanism and architecture: from the Roman colony, Barcino, and the still remaining walls to the middle age town with the revolutionary constructions in Catalan gothic style. From the expansion of the city in the XIX century with the Cerdà Plan, that was the framework in which Modernism was developed, to the end of the XX century, when the city reinvented itself again with the Olimpic vila and...
