European School of Urbanism & Architecture

The European School of Urbanism & Architecture is a new approach to architectural education addressing the most pressing challenges of European and global practice today.

The programme features:
  • The latest advances in best practice on sustainability and climate change
  • Integrated study of urbanism with architecture
  • Inter-disciplinary education
  • Immersive, project-based learning
  • Exchange studies across national boundaries
  • Emphasis on local and historical resources as a basis of sustainableĀ economics
  • First-hand studies of local architectural, urban and cultural histories
  • The economic and cultural value of local identity and tradition
ESUA has developed a new five-year curriculum for architectural education, and is currently running a number of workshops and study tours to address key areas of the curriculum currently lacking in architectural education.

The long-term goal of ESUA is to establish a full European architectural education based on a network approach with international partner institutions.
