Advance critical positions on design, culture, technology

Master of Architecture (M.Arch)

We recognize that students come from a wide range of academic and life experiences.  We emphasise architectural design as a form of critical inquiry.  Advanced studios offer exciting opportunities to study with the Azrieli Visiting Critics, who annually bring cutting-edge international design and research expertise to bear on the M.Arch.  The School holds semester-long Directed Studios Abroad, with current and recent sites including Berlin, Bologna, Helsinki, and Paris.

Please view our 2015 M.Arch folio of graduate student work.

Innovative, comprehensive doctoral program

PhD in Architecture (PhD)

Carleton University’s PhD in Architecture is an innovative, comprehensive doctoral program that fuses research with critical practice in architecture. Exceptionally talented and thoughtful architects are invited to undertake original, speculative, and experimental research within the well-established trinity of pathos, ethos, and logos that has come to distinguish the School of Architecture at Carleton. At the Carleton University Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism, doctoral projects will draw on the interrelated genetic, performative, and reflective aspects of architecture, design and material process.
