Program description

Master's Degree in Biodigital Architecture

UIC Barcelona's Master's in Biodigital Architecture is a pioneering programme of UIC Barcelona School of Architecture that combines architecture, biology and new digital trends. Since the year 2000 this programme has offered a unique approach to architecture from a biological and digital perspective.

The teaching programme establishes points of contact between new cybernetic-digital and ecological-environmental techniques. It incorporates experimental concepts, methods and works that use genetic-driven software, evolutionary processes, emerging systems, algorithms, parametric models and scripting. An innovative view of architecture that draws from areas such as genetic versus generative, natural versus digital and the impact of new biologies.

An avant-garde architecture and design programme that integrates the latest developments in conceptualisation and projection technology: Data-Driven Production, CNC numerical control machines, 3D printers... In short, a non-standard form of architecture that applies and promotes the genetic and digital principles of variation, mutation and hybridisation.
