ARCHIP exposed me to new ways of thinking about architecture, the teachers and studio leaders constantly encouraged and challenged me to connect personal design interests with my academic pursuits; as a result, the school gave me both the training and platform necessary to pursue a variety of entrepreneurial architecture and design projects. Thanks to ARCHIP, I was for example able to intern with firms in London and Copenhagen, and to develop my own unique approach towards design.
What makes ARCHIP unique
- diversity of experience
During their studies students can experience a semester in all 5 different studios at our school and try out an array of different design approaches and working methods
- international environment
With students from around 25 countries and a strict limit of 30 people in one year, a great team spirit is established and direct contact between teachers and students is carried out, which enables the students to highly develop on a personal level
- real life relevancy
All of the studio leaders are still active in the professional field of architecture, therefore the students have a unique chance to gain insight into actual processes of architecture and learn to handle challenges relevantly to a “real life” practice
- school’s outreach
The school collaborates on various projects with the municipality, NGOs, developers and other partners, which ensures that students gain practical experience, contacts and increase their desirability on the job market
School is situated in a lively neighborhood in the very center of Prague, so the students are constantly immersed in the city’s world-renown architectural heritage
What our students say
former student (United Kingdom)
former student (South Korea)
The sandbox environment of ARCHIP is ideal for experimentation. I feel that here I could really pursue my dream of studying design in a like-minded and inspiring community of people. During my studies we started Design Disco, a student-run organisation that teaches high schoolers about design. The faculty and staff at ARCHIP played a major role in getting this project off the ground, and have been supportive throughout.
