Housed within the unique institutional framework of the Städelschule, SAC is an exclusive offer among the postgraduate architectural training programmes worldwide. Situated in one half of an early 20th-century townhouse next to the main building of the Städelschule, SAC provides its members with a near domestic setting for the social and academic lives. Additional studios are within a short walking distance from the Städelschule campus. The locations offer ample space for students to work within an atmospheric milieu.
Given its small size yet truly international profile, SAC pursues excellence in architectural research and design while offering its students an intimate, challenging and ambitious academic environment where attention is given to each student’s personal development.
Being part of one of the world’s leading art schools, SAC engages in an intense experimental approach to the architectural discipline, exploring its boundaries and opportunities for continuously contributing to its development. Seminars, studio meetings, coffee breaks and individual consultancy provide the setting for a lively discourse which bring the theoretical speculations to the practical work and ceaseless experiments at SAC.
