Now Accepting Applications: SUPRASTUDIO 2014-2015

SUPRASTUDIO is a research platform in architecture education that advances experimentation and cross-discipline collaboration among professors, students, and industry partners to expand the boundaries of architectural practice.

The program is a one-year post-professional course of study that leads to a Masters of Architecture degree. Throughout the year, students work on a dedicated research topic to build a continuous and in depth line of study. Under the umbrella of UCLA, a premier global research institution, SUPRASTUDIO fills a current void in architecture education by providing a dedicated program and satellite campus for advanced applied research for the future of architecture and urban design.

The compressed and intensive timeline for this program requires an advanced background in architectural studies and is open to students with a five-year Bachelor of Architecture degree from an NAAB accredited program in the U.S., foreign equivalent, or graduate degree in architecture.

From Admissions Committee:
For M.Arch.II applicants to the Thom Mayne/Now Institute SUPRASTUDIO, we want to see a variety of projects, both digital and real that span multiple skills. We want to see an indication of strategic thinking rather than just formal design. Clarity of thought and analysis is weighed equal to clarity of presentation.

Director, Now Institute

About Suprastudio

“Industry often uses the language of architecture to speculate on the future of their fields. SUPRASTUDIO works with these partners in collaborative research, and opens up the future possibilities for architecture, from the outside in.”
