ARCHITECTURE & IMAGINATION

Architects are at the heart of how society rethinks the places we live, work and play, how we create more sustainable communities and healthier cities.

An architect imagines, draws and makes: the four-year Bachelor of Social Science (BSSc) degree in Architectural Studies at the CUHK School of Architecture aims to inspire students to think creatively, to experiment, and to explore drawing and making techniques. It teaches the design skills and knowledge that support creative inquiry in architecture – the programme nurtures a student’s individual imagination, developing design solutions that integrate cultural and physical contexts, structural and constructional environmental technologies.

Our aim is for students to find their own voice on a creative pathway to professional qualification. We nurture the confidence to prosper by providing the skills to think as designers and spatial practitioners. The programme lays the foundation for the two-year Master of Architecture at CUHK that fulfils the academic requirements to become a registered architect in Hong Kong.

DESIGN INNOVATION

The Master of Architecture (MArch) programme at the CUHK School of Architecture is a place of experimentation, a platform for design innovation. The two-year programme accredited by HKIA and RIBA prepares students in advanced areas of research, design thinking and speculative spatial practices. Each studio is a yearlong opportunity to explore design agendas in depth. Our aim is to foster the next generation of leading architects, educated to be at the heart of social, urban and rural innovation to create solutions for environmental challenges, and equipped with technical, digital and design skills to make a real difference.

Our MArch programme also offers international study experiences through field trips, global studios and exchange opportunities. Apart from an exciting range of elective courses across related disciplines, our required courses cover subjects that include building technology, history and theory, and professional practice.
