The Graduate Degree Programme in Architecture for the Old and New aims at forming a professional figure that is able to handle the complexity of the design and planning process in all its aspects, as well as understand, use, and coordinate theories and techniques from the different subject activities.

The cultural-scientific plan is aimed at developing the knowledge required for contemporary intervention in conservation and restoration of modern and ancient architecture. The two educational threads of ‘Old’ and ‘New’ present new themes of sustainability and energy saving, which have achieved an important role in contemporary design practice.

The study plan is joined by complementary activities, such as workshops and intensive seminars. The fourth and final semester is entirely dedicated to the preparation of the final exam and assessment.
