european architecture (reiseuni)

The study programme "European Architecture" is an international course of study implemented in cooperation with eight partner institutions of higher education. The intention of the new programme is to renew generalist architectural education in the context of European culture and to refocus on the role of the university as a place for innovation and research - in order to assume social responsibility, to recognize the university as a place for visionary thinking, and to establish a forum for a European architectural dialogue. The practical objective is to run an institutionalized platform, where a joint programme, a PhD platform and a network of eight different universities address contemporary issues in architecture. The universities provide a place for independent discourse and debate through profound analysis, for the development of alternative solutions for urban life and regional planning issues, as well as for experimentation with process-oriented scenarios and positions. A wealth of experience from interdisciplinary practitioners permits the exchange between the institutes of higher education.

The "European Architecture" course (before architektur.studium.generale) was established by Dagmar Jäger at the BTU Cottbus at 2009. Cottbus stopped the programme in the year 2012 because of financial problems. In winterterm 2015/16 the Reiseuni started again at the Tallinn University of Technology.
