The ensa-v encourages the intensive practise
of architectural projects while developing issues inherent to architecture in
the fields of constructions, towns and territories. That is why the school is
at once a site for reflection, production and creation which entails a multiplicity
of disciplinary approaches as well as a diversity of manipulation and modelling
The course features teaching the theory and the practice of architectural
and town planning projects to which 4 subject fields are associated:
architectural technical sciences, history, human and social sciences and artistic
The curriculum is in favour of interdisciplinarity based on architectural and
urban projects as it enables students to understand and apprehend complex realities.
The project must address among others, social, economic, technical, environmental
and territorial issues.
After undergoing a well-structured and progressive BA, students gain greater
autonomy during their MA with the choice of options, among which, projects they
can work on, study paper subjects and courses to attend. The ensa-v also encourages
studies abroad and offers students the possibility of completing a joint MA
Its primary goal is to train architects capable of exercising a range of
professional practices and ready to accomplish new assignments in order to meet
the ecological and sociological intricacies of the surrounding world.
