Designing Architectural Projects

This research unit groups together:

  • Teaching linked to architectural and urban compositions, more generally referred to as workshops ;
  • Teaching linked to architecture and heritage theory ;
  • Teaching linked to analysis methods and tools used in architectural design ;
  • The organisation of placements.

The research unit also carries out various missions related to architecture and perspective. As with other units, the research domains covered are thematic and not disciplinary.
The unit is also implicated in different public activities through its participation in competitions for universities, in projects linked to the Mons 2015 – European Capital of Culture, in collaborations with internationally renowned creative talent, in the organisation of international workshops (for example in Paris and Daegu (South Korea), and in projects designed to inform primary school children about contemporary architecture.
