- The MAS ETH UD is structured around an investigation of transforming urban conditions as they pertain to global phenomena, and the development of practical tools for operating within such domains.Worldwide tendencies toward processes of urbanisation demand research methods which promote both critically comparative analysis and the capacity to develop constructive approaches to such areas. Case studies addressing such conditions will be taken from both developing and developed countries, with the aim of understanding how to intervene upon and capitalise on processes and patterns of transformation common to both. Emphasis will be placed on the role of urban design as a key discipline in the formation of sustainability built environments.Each year, the MAS ETH UD will focus on specific topics and sites of urban research on which to intervene in the form of a design research studio. The topics address the challenges that contemporary urban design has to face, such as informal urban growth, poverty or aging. The sites are preferably territories under development pressure with existing groups of urban actors to engage with.
- The programme aims to develop a culture of urban research and design that enables the participant to actively envision future urban scenarios. Secondly, a strong emphasis is put on methodology, process design and communication in order to prepare for the interdisciplinary negotiating agenda of urban designers with an emphasis on academic research.
- University graduates from both Switzerland and abroad or interested individuals with equivalent educational status and experience who have studied and worked in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design or related fields. A strong interest in academic research is advised.
- Master's degree acknowledged by ETH or equivalent educational qualifications, preferably working experience. Portfolio with design work, letter of intent and letter of recommendation are required.
