MArch. Architecture, Design and Innovation

MArch. Architecture, Design and Innovation

The European University of Valencia offers a postgraduate education linked to Architecture and Design through three educational programmes. The different MArch programmes are directed by Fran Silvestre and feature influential speakers from current architecture, such as: Alvaro Siza, Souto de Moura, Manuel Aires Mateus, OAB • Carlos Ferrater and Juan Domingo Santos.

MArch originates as a cultural meeting point for professional architects and designers, students and companies with a same set of values; with the aim of bringing together and sharing the different experiences that arise during creative processes. The program is a nexus between the academic, professional and enterprise worlds, which is vital nowadays.

The process of learning develops through practical activities that allow the students to systematize and apply technical knowledge to the development of different phases of professional activity. These experiences converge in Espai Alfaro, a place of artistic tradition that allows for synergies to be generated between all of the different contributors through the proposed teaching programmes.

All courses offer the opportunity to do an internship during the programmes, working on real projects that make it possible to understand all parts of the architectural design process.

March programmes are located on the urban campus of the European University of Valencia, in the city center.

Espai Alfaro is a place of artistic tradition where art, design and architecture come together. It was born as a workshop and studio of Valencian sculptor Andreu Alfaro and was designed by architect Emilio Giménez. In 1995, the space was enlarged by the same architect, expanding the space for the studio and the Alfaro Hofmann Collection.

Now, this space is conceived as a place of interaction and relationship between different cultural standing points through exhibitions, events, teaching programmes and professional practice. It is 7,000sqm and composed of the Workshops, the Square, the Library, the MArch Classroom, the Alfaro Hofmann Studio, the Fran Silvestre Architects Studio, the Alfaro Hofmann Collection and a Space for Temporary Exhibitions.


The programmes are aimed at students in their last year of architecture, architects, building engineers, interior designers and graduates or licensed in other creative disciplines.
