Design thinking is a powerful competence that is key to address the range of complex and interrelated challenges we face.

The MA+U programs in Tilburg (the Netherlands) are collaborative, topical, creative and practice based. The design studio is the heart of the Master program. In the studio students are trained to apply all kinds of skills and methods towards ever more convincing synthetic design proposals for complex spatial problems. A unique aspect of the programs is that they are taught in a concurrent way, combining studio work and courses with a relevant professional practice during the Master program. Concurrent education offers students experience and education beyond the school curriculum.

Studio for Immediate Spaces (MiA):
In between the logic of constructing architecture and the design of objects, we experiment and explore the immediate space. The Studio for Immediate Spaces is a place for understanding and defining specific spaces that we live in, we work, eat, socialize, discuss, or perform in.
To explore and expand the field of the interior as a specialized focus on space that has a direct relation to their users, we include any space as a possible place. For us they are in- and outside. They are here and on the moon. They exist in our minds and are physically around us.
Our practice is to define our gestures out of which we construct the spaces we inhabit, and to see space as a circumstance to let something happen.
(Tony Smith about his six-foot steel cube)


The programme's curriculum reflects on the diverse and complex challenges facing architecture as a socially responsible profession today. An understanding of and an active engagement with cultural sustainability is at the heart of its curriculum.

The different design studios give students the opportunity to engage with this topic on a variety of scales applying a multitude of design- and research methods, preparing students for the demands of the broad field of architecture and planning. The specific agendas developed in the design studios range from architectural design theory to cultural architecture, sustainable design and sustainable urban design. Together with a series of elective classes, they enable students to design their own curriculum and thus develop their personal interests in-depth.

Small classes and design studios provide a personal, creative and productive learning and research environment. Currently, students of more than 30 different nationalities create a unique cosmopolitan atmosphere on a compact campus within a stunning alpine setting. A compulsory exchange semester at one of the Institute’s high-profile international Partner-Universities helps students to test their acquired knowledge in a different cultural and academic environment and offers new perspectives and opportunities.

Graduates of the Master’s degree programme in Architecture are well prepared for a career in architecture, and thanks to the sound practical and academic education, promising perspectives may also arise in various research fields and academia. Upon successful completion of the programme, the University of Liechtenstein grants the academic degree of: Master of Science in Architecture ( MSc Arch )
