The Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning was founded in 1924, when the Technion opened its doors for the first time. To this day, it serves as a unique framework for the professional training of architects, landscape architects, regional and urban planners, industrial designers, as well as researchers in these fields.
The faculty’s mission is to train professionals and researchers who, while possessing technological and creative skills, will also be highly aware of the values of culture, the environment and the needs of society. Therefore, the curriculum emphasizes not only design aspects, but also the environmental, sociocultural, economic, psychological and legal aspects of human intervention in the physical environment.
