The Architecture programme at Politecnico di Torino focuses on the practice of architectural design in its various aspects and at different scales, incorporating both humanistic and technical disciplinary contributions.

Traditionally structured courses are supplemented by mono-disciplinary laboratories and ateliers, or multidisciplinary laboratories providing opportunities for practical application of theoretical learning, as well as creating learning experiences from the reality of territorial transformation and interdisciplinary dialogue. 

In the first year, students will follow courses in mathematics, history, technology, representation, and English.  

There is also a multidisciplinary atelier offering an overview of the subjects - architectural design, urban planning and construction - that encompass the diverse topics and scales which must be confronted in architectural design, from the urban context to the individual building.

The main aim of the Architecture programme at Politecnico di Torino is to train graduates who will acquire: 

  • adequate knowledge of architectural and construction history, of the tools and forms of representation, of the methodological and operational aspects of mathematics and the other basic sciences; the ability to use this knowledge to interpret and describe problems in architecture and construction; 
  • adequate knowledge of the methodologies and operations relating to the subject areas of the study program, and the ability to identify, process and solve problems in architecture and construction by using state-of-the-art methods, techniques and tools;
  • adequate knowledge of  technical and economic feasibility, cost calculations and the production and creation process of architectural and construction works, as well as their related safety; 
  • the ability to use architectural design and construction techniques and tools, 
  • the ability to communicate effectively, in written and oral form, in at least one European Union language other than Italian.

Career opportunities

Through the formation of a basis in all areas of knowledge that traditionally converge in the architecture discipline, the course aims to provide design skills that will constitute a valuable support for students wishing to pursue their studies in many MSc-level programmemes: architecture and urban design, design, planning, conservation and landscaping.
