You develop design skills through analysis of existing buildings and by solving realistic architectural problems in a Danish context. In studio projects, you construct spatial models in physical and digital media and advance your communication skills in expressing abstract concepts. Studios are taught vertically, combining students of different levels. Expectations relate to you as an individual student.
