The urban designer's core competence is the ability to design spatial conditions facilitating diverse and dynamic urban programmes and urban conditions with respect for the social, ecological and economic values of the site and society. A specific competence of urban designers is the ability to switch easily between the different scales and to strategically reconcile the conflicting needs that may arise at those different scales. This requires great social and political sensibility as well as well-developed communication and collaboration skills.
The educational concept of this Master program is unique; education in concurrency with employment in a professional practice. This concurrent education offers students experience and education beyond the school curriculum, essential to their professional formation as urban designers. Additionally, the Academy itself is a laboratory for spatial assignments from real stakeholders. Our tutors are professionals from a variety of disciplines, but all with a strong relation to practice. The Design Studio is the heart of the master program. In the studio students are trained to apply all kinds of skills and methods towards ever more convincing synthetic design proposals for complex spatial problems. The studio assignments are invariably related to the complexity of contemporary societies and will engage social, cultural, political, economic and technological parameters.
