Aarhus School of Architecture
|Aarhus School of Architecture|
The Aarhus School of Architecture (Arkitektskolen Aarhus) was founded in 1965 in Århus, Denmark. Along with the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen, it is responsible for the education of architects in Denmark. The school has approximately 750 students. Teaching at the school is studio-based emphasising group work and project work. The school places an emphasis on practice-based teaching while maintaining an artistic approach to architecture. Teaching, which is organised around a number of academic platforms , is based on on-going and close dialogue with teachers. Workshop facilities allow students to explore their ideas in 3D and in 1:1. Other resources include a specialised library and a materials shop.
Besides Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD programmes the school offers supplementary education for architects and similar professional groups at various levels. Research at the school is also to a high degree practice-based, i.e. based on cooperation with architectural practices located internationally and locally. The high concentration of architectural practices in Aarhus provides a sound basis for this cooperation.
