The first Czech private school of architecture, Architectural Institute in Prague (ARCHIP), is currently accepting applications from prospective local and international students for its baccalaureate study programme in Architecture, with instruction in English.
In 2005, plans were drawn up by architects Martin Roubik (1949-2008) and Regina Loukotová for an international school of architecture in Prague. The idea was for the school to be truly international, with an international student community and faculty members hailing from (or having extensive experience from) abroad. The new school will offer an extensive curriculum to approximately sixty students a year, including fields such as landscape design, urbanism, public space development and monument conservation. ARCHIP also intends to include its home city, Prague, in its educational programme, and encourage the hands-on contact of students with the city’s past and present.
The only school of its kind to offer the baccalaureate programme in English, the faculty also relies on leading Czech architects and other equally recognised individuals in the field of history and theory or visual arts.
