Studio One

One-Year Master of Architecture

About the Program

STUDIO ONE is a one-year post-professional design studio intended for those who have a professional (accredited Bachelor of Architecture) degree, and who wish to continue to explore current design issues in a stimulating, rigorous, and experimental studio setting. Students who complete the program will receive a non-accredited Master of Architecture degree.

The year-long studio is at the core of the program, integrated with seminars and lectures in design theory, history, digital applications, and building technology. Students also have the opportunity to enroll in other elective classes in the College of Environmental Design. The studio director is joined by a team of several other faculty from the department and the college.

The 2017-2018 Studio One Program Theme

Building on the positive experience of last year, Studio One will once again have the theme Bio-inspired Design and Fabrication and be directed by Assistant Professor Simon Schleicher. Information about Dr. Schleicher's research program, Design Innovation From Nature can also help illuminate aspects of the program.


Note: There is also the possibility to apply for the one-year program as an independent design scholar. These proposals require a high level of focus, and should be addressed to specific faculty interests. Please make note in your application if you would like to be considered for admission as an independent design scholar.
