Architectural Institute in Prague


Recommended Posts

ARCHIP (Architectural Institute in Prague) is the only college of architecture in Central Europe to offer a complete 3-year Bachelor's program and 2-year Master's .program in English.ARCHIP is a progressive new school of architecture, a hybrid of global and local scales, of conceptual and technical training, and a philosophical space combining the best of the European and American tradition of architecture education.
We offer an undergraduate program (Bc) and a graduate program (MA) and Global Architecture + Design, one of the CIEE College Study Abroad Programmes. For details of the programs, please see the relevant sections of our website.
The organization of the Architectural Design (AD) studio at ARCHIP follows the principles of the 'Vertical Studio' model. The Vertical studio is organized by combining students of different years into a single studio. Within the Vertical studio, all years cooperate on a single site and program, yet their scale, scope, and aims are different. There are multiple independent vertical studios running in parallel. There are three independent studios for undergraduate students and one for the graduate students.
There are 15-18 students in each studio, each with a similar number of first, second, and third-year students. While the project's site and program are the same for all studios, the specific design approaches and methodologies vary. Each is under the direction of a different pair of studio leaders. After each semester, students switch studios, to gain exposure to the full range of practices and design thinking unique to each studio. For their final semester, third-year students are allowed to select the studio of their choice.
At ARCHIP, the faculty and the school management strives to create a highly stimulating learning environment for our students. We greatly value dialogue – both as an integral part of the process of architecture and design, and a method of teaching and learning.
