One can study to become an architect at two very different types of higher education institutions: technical universities and art institutions. While the main objective, that is to provide high quality education in architecure, is the same in both cases, at technical universities greater emphasis is placed on engineering skills, while art institutions focus primarily on artistic vision. The MA programme in architecture at MOME follows the old tradition of a unifying approach towards architecture, interior design and furniture design. The high quality of the training is guaranteed by a close master-disciple relationship, the low number of students per year (12-14) and the outstanding professional activities of our professors. Priority is given to project-based training within the programme: during the MOME Course Weeks, our students are given the opportunity of thinking and working together with their colleagues of other areas of study e.g. design, media and theory. The Department invites prestigious international guest speakers on a regular basis: in the past years, Steven Holl (USA), Kengo Kuma (Japan) and Peter Zumthor (Switzerland) have been our guests.
*Besides the compulsary subjects, the completion of a number of alternative subjects (theoretical studies, speciality subjects) and free elective subjects, specified in the syllabuses, are necessary for completing the training.
