SUMMER SEMESTER 2016

07 April - 07 July 2016

WELCOME TO SAC!

THE STÄDELSCHULE ARCHITECTURE CLASS (SAC) OFFERS EXPERIMENTAL AND RESEARCH-BASED POSTGRADUATE STUDIES IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN.

Being a major part of the Städelschule art academy, founded in 1817 and one of the world's foremost art schools, SAC's academic programme offers a two-year postgraduate Master of Arts in Architecture degree. The programme is uniquely devoted to contemporary architectural design. Through its experimental research and the excellence of its students and graduates, the programme continuously explores disciplinary specific problems and the status of architecture within contemporary society. ​Led by its programme director, Prof.Dr. Johan Bettum, SAC currently hosts a total of 65 students.

BERNARD TSCHUMI IS THE DEAN'S HONORARY LECTURER 2016!

SAC is proud to welcome Bernard Tschumi to deliver the Dean's Honorary Lecture for the Year 2016 on the 7th of July as part of he end of year reviews for the Master Thesis Group. Read More

"the städelschule's pedagogy begins where that of most other schools ends - at the point where a program of exploration takes on rigor, risk and clear direction. the work in the städelschule is inspired, radical and bold, but most importantly, it is collective on a remarkably relaxed and intimate level. it is one of the few schools today where speculation is a requirement, not an occasional event."

"CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE IS FULLY SATURATED WITH TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENTS OF ALL KINDS AND SIMPLY BEGS AN EQUIVALENT ADVANCE IN DESIGN THINKING AND AESTHETIC MAKING."

JOHAN BETTUM

"SAC isn’t about steering young architects in any one particular direction. It concerns itself with providing the best possible balance of essential theoretical and creative knowledge on an individual basis along with pragmatic know-how. The goal is to provide the best possible basis for each individual to prepare for whichever avenue to pursue in the future."

BEN VAN BERKEL

"...only four, five or six schools in the world really define themselves completely in terms of being a kind of experimental laboratory for the future of the discipline, and the städelschule is one of these."

Mark Wigley

SAC Journal

The SAC Journal is a periodical that documents and critically reviews projects and theoretical discussions within contemporary, architectural design culture. The projects and texts published relate to the ongoing interests and ambitions of SAC. The publication series attempts to contribute to the discipline of architecture on a critical and discursive level. Read More
