Computation in Architecture at Royal Danish Academy

The Computation in Architecture course at the Royal Danish Academy equips students with knowledge of biomaterials, 3D modelling and robotics to create architectural designs informed by advancements in technology.

School: Royal Danish Academy
Course: Computation in Architecture
Location: Copenhagen, Denmark
Course dates: September 2024 to June 2026
Application deadline: 1 March 2024

Computation in Architecture is an international two-year Master of Arts in Architecture education that explores the critical consideration of technology as a driver for thinking, forming and realising architecture.

With a specific focus on advanced modelling, biomaterials, smart sensing and robotic fabrication, the programme fosters a dynamic, creative, intellectually rigorous and design-led environment that stimulates critical inquiry into issues of sustainability, site, structure, behaviour, materiality and architectural expression.

Students entering the programme develop research-based design approaches to foster expertise and knowledge in the concepts, technological trajectories and practices that will drive future practice.

Computation in Architecture is embedded within the Centre for IT and Architecture (CITA), an internationally renowned innovative research centre, and is closely connected to a wider community of computational design in architectural practice.

The programme is taught by active CITA researchers and shares the centre's resources, including an advanced suite of computational tools, the robotics lab, the bio-lab, and state-of-the-art research knowledge.

As a student joining the programme, you will be able to position yourself at the forefront of innovation in design-computation, material systems, sustainability and robotic fabrication.
