Department of Architecture

Department of Architecture

The Department of Architecture has an excellent international reputation stemming from the Finnish regional architectural culture. For decades, our distinguished quality in architectural teaching has held a strong bond to the practical design work in architectural offices.

For us, architecture is an art, requiring learning of professional practice, personal artistic development and technical knowledge of building.

Research

Research carried out within the Department of Architecture covers the whole gamut of architecture, urban design and landscape architecture. Focus lays on building up social welfare, health care and urban design.

Our staff at the Department of Architecture consists of leading practitioners who have an active career in design projects, architectural competitions and exhibitions. Many design works have been largely published also internationally. We are the only school in Finland offering university level studies in Landscape Architecture. Students and recently graduated have lately succeeded in national and international design competitions.
