The Media Architecture programme offered by Bauhaus University Weimar follows in the tradition of the historic Bauhaus and its programmatic »new unity of art and technology«, offering students the ideal conditions in which to reconceptualise, extend and formulate space in an age in which all areas of life are experiencing total and global medialisation!


What does the programme offer?

The Media Architecture programme at Bauhaus University Weimar offers in the first instance a well-grounded further education qualification for contemporary media- and architecture-related vocations. At the same time it provides a place of experimentation, a kind of laboratory or meeting place for areas of joint research and new fields of work whose forms of expression transcend disciplinary boundaries. The core element of the study programme is the project module which, through intensive ongoing supervision and experimental exploration, provides an opportunity to develop exemplary responses to issues that are currently unresolved. 

As the student, you can determine the relative degree of theoretical or practical work in your project work according to your individual requirements. Coursework is conducted jointly in interdisciplinary project groups, giving you the chance to learn outside of disciplinary boundaries and to train your ability to work in an interdisciplinary team. The study course is open to new professions arising in the broad spectrum between architecture and new media.
