The Advanced School of Architecture (ASA) of the Politecnico Milano is an "additive" training course that runs parallel to the Master's Degree Programs in Architecture (class LM-4). The mission of the ASA is to strengthen and develop the figure of the architect-designer, through design and research activities that put him in direct contact with the professional reality and with the complexity of the processes currently underway in the various European and extra-European realities.
Director Pierre-Alain Croset
ASA is aimed at talented young students selected (20 per year) on the basis of the didactic curriculum and the average achieved in the Bachelor's Degree or in the first three years of the five-year single cycle Master Degree at PoliMI.
Students of the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering can apply if:
The program takes place over the two years of the Master's Degree and the fourth and fifth year of the Single Cycle Master Degree through training experiences, with compulsory attendance, of two types:
There are 3 Master Classes lasting one week, to be carried out at Politecnico di Milano in the following periods:
The experience of Advanced Design Practice takes place, after the end of the two years of the Master's Degree, for a duration of at least 600 hours (15 weeks) in an architectural firm of excellence, to be chosen from a list of affiliated international studios.
Part of the hours of this activity will be recognized within the compulsory curricular internship. Students will have to return the completeness of their design and professional experience in the form of a "Logbook", with a critical text illustrated with sketches, drawings and photographs.
In line with the ASA's mission to strengthen and develop the figure of the architect-designer, the degree thesis must necessarily be a design thesis (Research by Design), the elaboration of which can possibly begin within one of the Master Classes or during the period of advanced design practice in the architectural firm of excellence.
Delivery and discussion of the degree thesis (possibly anticipated): April 2023
