The emerging global knowledge

based economy increasingly relies on the dissemination of information and know-how. Geographically and temporally distributed design is becoming the prevailing mode of architectural practice. Modern conditions call for a teaching and learning environment that takes advantage of the remote delivery of design education while promoting the social significance of common, digital space situated in the specificity of global context. Recognition of the unique role of locality contributed by each student in the networked design universe is central to ASK success.

ASK [Architecture for Society of Knowledge]

is dedicated to those who wish to extend their practical understanding of contemporary architecture and urban planning. The program addresses digital media in design, prototyping with computer controlled machines, distributed design collaboration, and agendas for sustainable, intelligent building. At the same time it reflects on architectural basics: cultural heritage, history and theory paradigms, social aspects of space creation, and education through interacting space. ASK concludes with a M.Sc Arch. professional degree in the field of Architecture and Urban Planning. It is designed to be delivered partially over distance and requires a limited, residency period during its core program, plus the Master's thesis defense.

Vision
Our vision of a modern architect's education is based on confronting contemporary social and cultural conditions while taking full advantage of new technologies as foundations of Society of Knowledge.

ASK reflects architectural evolution from 20th century space design towards 21st century information processing design. It anticipates the shift in paradigm in the nature of architectural practice and theory. It provides an interdisciplinary curriculum designed to reinforce student competence in answering crucial questions ushered in with the crisis of globalization. Can local context present new opportunities for nonuniform global trends? Can new conditions of situated design and problem solving reveal the opportunities of previously marginalized societies while maintaining richness of diverse? Can we aspire towards vision of architecture derived from the diverse richness of the emerging society of knowledge? The ASK Program aims to equip young practicing architects with the formative experience required for:

* Active participation in the global architectural knowledge society, and critical interpretation of the creative aspects of design and design collaboration.
* Collaborative and interdisciplinary practice of architecture.
* Architectural research exploring new design technology and theory.
