SCIArc MediaSCAPES program

SCI-ARC Launches New Postgraduate Program, MediaSCAPES
--media production and theory in today's highly technologized cities, landscapes and architecture--

Los Angeles-- In Fall 2007, the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-ARC) will launch MediaSCAPES, a new one-year post-graduate program that critically responds to massive changes in contemporary technologies and emergent geopolitical systems.

In the five years between 2007 and 2012, the world will experience greater technological advances in the mediascapes which form our everyday life than in the entire previous fifty years of progress. The program will provide an academic platform which will define a new paradigm in curriculum, research and design. MediaSCAPES will leverage significant emerging relationships within technology, software, media, film and game spaces to produce new content and ideas in a "thinktank R&D" environment. The curriculum will blend an intensive design studio culture with theory, research and practice, preparing students for thought leadership in design, research and theory work across the fields of new media, architecture, landscape, and digital film. Students will graduate with a Masters in Architecture. Those interested in applying to the program may contact the SCI-ARC admissions office at 213.613.2200 x320 or admissions@sciarc.edu. Applications will be accepted through June 2007.
