studying architecture in Venice

studying architecture in Venice

The master’s degree in architecture at UniversitÓ Iuav di Venezia is a unique, high-quality study programme in Italy in a city that represents an unparalleled architectural and urbanistic model.

The architect's mission is to interpret the times and anticipate the future, designing the physical space around us with responsibility and a sense of ethics. Venice completes this study programme by providing a daily lesson in beauty and sustainability, respect for the environment, buildings and spaces of historical value.

Studying architecture in Venice means learning in a motivating and dynamic environment and acquiring multiple skills, including teamwork and critical thinking. It also means benefiting from major learning opportunities: internships, international experiences, and especially the Architecture summer workshops. Three weeks of intensive design under the guidance of internationally renowned architects and professionals that, in addition to being an extraordinarily effective experience, allow students to cultivate a network of relationships relevant to their professional careers.


the master’s degree in architecture

The master’s degree in architecture is structured around three tracks: conservation, sustainability, and interiors. Students can organise their studies around one of these topics or choose a flexible study plan, combining them according to their interests, curiosity, and attitudes.

This study programme provides the opportunity to develop specialised contemporary projects that concern the human, built and spontaneous landscape.

The study of the topics mentioned above is concentrated in the first three semesters, while the fourth semester focuses on the choice of graduation subject.

The themes addressed include territory, material innovation, management of sensitive areas (historical and modern), resilient design and strategic reconstruction issues, and interior design. This last path, from domestic to public space and museum displays, is one of the most recent additions to the master’s degree in architecture.



The master’s degree in architecture can lead to architectural professions recognised in Europe. This study programme provides high-level professional training on the technical skills and responsibilities required in the international context, which today addresses territorial conservation, the reuse and regeneration of the building heritage and the needs of contemporaneity, which see architects operating within complex and multi-scalar scenarios.
