Interactive webinar: Unique International Master of Interior Architecture on Adaptive Reuse
Exploring Spatial potentialities & the Poetics of the Existing
This academic master’s programme of the Faculty of Architecture and Arts is innovative as it considers preservation through the act of adaptive reuse instead of mere conservation and restoration. Rather than relying on an archaeological perspective, it emphasises a designerly approach as to give new and unexpected energy to buildings.
Therefore, the programme seeks to train students who explore and activate the rich potential of existing sites through design supported by research and theory. Ideally positioned in a region full of historical sites with various identities (cultural, artistic, religious and industrial), the faculty is in close geographic proximity to a rich laboratory of potential cases that span 600 years.
An international team of renowned architects supports this programme. Hasselt University is located in Limburg, the peaceful and affordable heart of Europe, and ranked as 15th best small university in the world according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
