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.

SAC 2016 FacultY line-up

SAC proudly announces its faculty line-up for the academic year, 2016-17. SAC will offer three second-year, thesis studios led respectively by: Peter Trummer (Architecture and Urban Design); Cristina Moreno and Efrén Grinda of Amid.Cero9 (Advanced Architectural Design); and Johan Bettum and Damjan Jovanovic with Daniel Birnbaum for theory seminars (Architecture and Aesthetic Practice). Bettum and Jovanovic will offer the programme to SAC's First Year Group while Beatriz Colomina and Mark Wigley will teach history and theory. David Ruy, 'Postgraduate Programs Chair' at SCI-Arc, is a guest tutor at SAC 2016-17 (Read More).

In addition to its own faculty, SAC will have numerous visitors throughout the year - including its annual public lecture series in the summer semester, and the Städelschule will host a special visitors programme for architecture.
