Slide background

School of Architecture

Technical University of Crete

Welcome to website of the School of Architecture - Technical University of Crete

Founded in 2004 and based at the historic city of Chania Crete, the School of Architecture of the Technical University of Crete combines the Mediterranean identity with an international perspective. Chania, with its historic palimpsest and an impressive Cretan landscape, forms a source of inspiration to conceive and design architecture. Through artistic creativity, interdisciplinarity and collective work, faculty and students explore forms and concepts, by synthesizing tradition and innovation. From the small scale of architectural construction, to the intermediate one of urban design and urbanism, and the bigger one of landscape and regional planning, the School courses offer conceptual synergies between theory and practice. Technological advances, bioclimatic issues, restoration methods, digital media, visual arts and theory courses, support contemporary design and thinking in the main studio.

The School offers a graduate program of Architecture and two Master's degrees entitled as "Tourism, Culture and Mediterranean Space: Contemporary Design Approaches" and "Integrated Protection of the Historic Built Environment". The graduate courses combine design practice with theoretical thinking, with a particular emphasis on the relationship between the cultural and the natural environment.
