Architecture as an education needs to strengthen its knowledge-transfer infrastructure and breed an interactive flexible learning environment to absorb ever-changing needs and objectives of the professional/research sides of the field of architecture, and find ways to steer the poles of the knowledge triangle (research/education/profession) to enhance the innovation potential of European educational and research system in terms of handling the transformation of the built environment.

The architectural design education programs have the potential to steer the poles of the knowledge triangle within the two key fields of interaction at their core curricula. The final architectural design studio, mainly known as diploma project, as an “in-between” educational/professional life, is the place, where the knowledge triangle is at stake with the joint of work of teachers coming from research, academic and professional fields. Internships/training periods/summer practices are the inaugural place for the students to face the professional field of architecture.

The main objective of project is to first explore and then innovate the paths followed by the in-between mediation activities occurring in the field of interactions (methods, processes, and execution), in this way to enhance architectural education programs that (1) pursue the works of EAAE-UIA workgroup and UIA/UNESCO education commission; (2) are compatible with EU directives and 2011 EU modernisation agenda by respecting local and regional qualities.
