Master of Science in Architecture

Focus your studies on Situated Technologies

Situated technologies refers to the intersection of architecture, new media and computational technologies, and the possibilities of human interaction with and within the built environment. Computational technology provides both a means and a medium for this research - an operative paradigm for articulating relations between people, information and the material fabric of everyday life.

What will you be studying?

MS in Architecture students may choose to focus their course of study on the techniques and methods necessary to work creatively with contemporary and emerging technologies. Other courses in this area enable students to develop a critical position vis-à-vis the history and theory of technology, mediation and spatial experience. Students may also advance their research in situated technologies through their MS in Architecture thesis.
