Introduction

The Master of Science degree in Advanced Architectural Design is a three-semester program aimed at providing outstanding young professionals who already hold a Bachelor of Architecture or Master of Architecture the opportunity to conceptualize design as a critical practice that shapes the world's technological, relational, and environmental evolutions. The program is viewed as a framework for exploring both academic and professional concerns through a set of inquiries and premises: architecture and its design practices are critical in addressing contemporary challenges; architectural specificity is the result of transdisciplinary cooperation; architecture's future agency lies in the discipline's capacity to mobilize realities across different scales and time frames. These ideas are explored through innovations in representational tools and the embrace of new probationary artifacts, inviting students to shift away from the specialized mastery of specific scales towards methods of interscalarity. By aligning new models of response to new architectural modes of practice, the Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design program strives to empower graduating students in the face of unknown future scenarios.
