The international track Villard de Honnecourt, which is organised in agreement with the Ecole Nationale SupÚrieure d'Architecture de Paris-Belleville (France), the Technische Universiteit Delft (Netherlands) and the Universidad de Madrid (Spain), deals specifically with a theme that can be summarised as 'Post-Urban'.

This research field aims at the reading and interpretation of the XXI Century phenomena tied to the concept of architecture and urbanity. The programme’s choice is to interpret such phenomena in the frame of the contemporary theoretical and cultural context, by focusing on the articulated evolution of the role of the architect and to the ecologic and geopolitical background that heavily influences architecture theory and practice. Students’ research work will aim at scanning such intellectual landscape, deconstructing its origins, trends, intersections with other disciplines, while keeping in mind that architecture - however solid may be the autonomous structure of its knowledge - is a growingly effective medium in building new relations.
