PhD in Architectural Communication
Coinciding with a reconsideration of the traditional paradigms of modernity fueled by the crisis, research in architecture has suffered a widening of the eyes, that has caused a shift towards strategical questions where the architectural project becomes a system of thought and positioning against a reality. The project turns from an object of contemplation into a relational object, which promotes relations between different parts and a variety of variables coming from specific efforts and emotional responses.
Being an architect has many formats today. The traditional architect educated at the responsibility of designing and constructing his work, currently lives with other partners, including those who wish to develop their ability to read, describe and even negotiate the reality, transforming it in a kind of contemporary architectural project material from very different and sometimes unknown point of views.
Facing the world of authentic specialization, society demands us to take care of updated needs to interconnect specialized worlds – from the complexity – in order to relate the multiplicity of specialized mediations as organizers, negotiators and communicators of knowledge.
The origin of Graduate Studies in Architectural Communication responds to an emerging demand that tries to provide a specific space for training, study and research, for those graduate students who are interested in developing a graduate linked to the phenomena of communication in the deep scope of the architectural project. Training will be addressed from both a humanistic, sociological and / or scientific approach, and from a technological dimension of experimental and innovative features.
It provides and promotes interdepartmental links and interschool programs, as well as broaden research lines of research groups from different departments
