Faculty profile

The Department of Architecture dArTe, was established in 2012. It offers graduate-level professional education and advanced research opportunities in architecture and allied design fields as interior design, landscape design, urban planning, restoration, enhancement and management of the architectural heritage. It focuses on developing ideas in architecture, researches on social, cultural, and physical context, as well as takes on an exploration for alternative ways of material utilization.
The objectives of dArTe, reflect the view that architecture is an intellectual discipline, both an art and a profession. The program, therefore, is based on the following intentions: to stimulate artistic sensitivity and creative powers, to strengthen intellectual growth and the capacity to develop creative and responsible solutions to unique and changing problems, and to help the student acquire the individual capabilities necessary for the competent practice of architecture and lifelong learning (in reference to the European Union Directive 2005/36 governing the exercise of the profession of architect in Europe).
The task of architecture is the creation of human environments. It is both an expression of human values and a context for human activity. Through the design process, architecture addresses the interrelated environmental, behavioral, and cultural issues that underlie the organization of built form. The student of architecture is called upon to direct sensitivity, imagination, and intellect to the physical significance of these fundamental issues in designing a coherent environment for people.
The Department of Architecture dArTe offers a five-year program (LM - 4) leading to the degree of Master of Architecture. This course is a limited entry with about 150 students each year (for entry to the five-year program students have to complete successfully an exam). The Department also offers independent research leading to the degree of Master of 1st and 2nd level; and a program leading to a Ph.D. degree in Architecture and Territory.
In the Department are employed 52 full-time professors, of which 12 professors, 14 associate professors, 26 aggregates professors (researchers indefinitely). The department offers services and spaces for the study. It consists of 12 study classrooms, 8 workshop classrooms, 2 study rooms (total of 1,690 study stations); 3 laboratories (multimedia, language, materials); 1 library (47,400 volumes, 130 subscriptions to periodicals) with a total of 120 stations.
