Get to know the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture

On our open days and introductory workshops we give aspiring students and interested parties the opportunity to get to know more about the Academy and the creative learning environment at the Academy of Architecture in the centre of Amsterdam. It is possible to take a sneak peek inside our Academy by watching the videos of teachers, students, graduates, study advisors and the heads of Architecture, Urban Design and Landscape Architecture. Should you have any questions, please email us at

Open days
The Academy of Architecture will organize several open days in this academic year. On an open day (or evening) you will gather information about the education at the Academy, there is an opportunity to ask questions to the practice- and the study coordinators about the combination of work and study and you can meet the heads of the masters Architecture, Urban Design and Landscape Architecture. On the live open day you can feel the atmosphere of our historical building, join a guided tour including a visit to the model studio and the library and meet students and graduates of the Academy.

Introductory workshops
The Academy of Architecture organizes introductory workshops as an introduction to the education we offer. The workshops are meant for (graduate) students of relevant education and art schools interested in following a pre-masterminor, or masters degree.

Workshops provide an excellent opportunity to get more acquainted with the education of the Academy. During a live workshop, you will work on an assignment in an (international) team; online you will work individually on the assignment, with guidance from the tutors. The tutors are graduates of the Academy and they will happily answer all your questions, feel free to ask them anything about the Academy. The workshops run from 9:15 to appr. 17:15. Participation is free, but not non-committal: we expect your presence throughout the day.
