Integrated Master in Architecture
Specialization Profile in Integrated Architecture

The Master degree in Architecture provided by the Lisbon School of Architecture aims to give students a set of competences, mostly of project-based nature, that allows them throughout the teaching/learning process, to recognize, question and experiment with ideas, facts and architectural knowledge of a complex and integrating nature. In this process, students operate on human creations, underlined with ways of scientific, humanistic and artistic thinking and expression, linked to territory – both natural and artificial – that we designate as the space inhabited by human beings.
This study is composed by two cycles of studies (mandatory for the professional exercise, by the Portuguese Architects Association). The admission to the 2nd cycle can be done by students that have concluded the 1st cycle in a national homologous study. The procedure is subject to independent applications and places.
Global vision
This training allows for the development of deep knowledge in the scientific area of architecture, of project and professional practice, and may constitute the main foundation for the development of original applications, in many cases within the context of research.
The degree of Master if given to those who demonstrate the capacity for understanding and resolution of problems in new situations that are not familiar. Inserted in broad and multidisciplinary contexts, this degree provides the capability to solve problems linked to architecture and urbanism, that is: the capacity to integrate knowledge, to deal with complex questions, to develop solutions or give informed judgements in situations of limited or incomplete information. Diverse reflections about the implications, ethical and social responsibilities will result from those solutions, judgements, and constraints. The ability to communicate knowledge, thought process and conclusions unambiguously to populations stems from that enlightening capability of owning competences, that allow future masters in architecture to carry out an autonomous learning throughout life.
The study is destined to all that seek to practice thinking and projecting the built space and its relationship with man.
Obtaining the degree os master
Upon the approval of the Final Master Project, or Dissertation, or Internship, the masters in architecture acquire the status of professional architects, being habilitated to exercise the profession in a liberal way or in industry, commerce, education, research or in central, regional and local administration.
They also acquire the right of access to the Portuguese Architects Association.
Professional opportunities
Architects prepared for the conception, rehabilitation, and remodeling of buildings, sets of buildings, public and urban spaces, landscape and territory. The scope of their activity encompasses distinct functions that range from housing, to public and private services, culture, education, health, sports or industrial equipment.
Facing the challenges of the contemporary world, we prepare professionals that are capable of positioning themselves in a professional and disciplinary territory that demands a constant redefinition of the scope and nature of their intervention.
Teaching staff
The teaching staff of the Integrated Master in Architecture with Specialization in Interior Architecture includes professionals with a vast experience in project, as well as teachers from the other curricular areas present in this training that teach the specific contents to each curricular unit in an integrative perspective and articulated by a global view of the course and competences to be acquired.
