About the Council

   Frame of reference





The Architecture Council aims to promote teaching and research in the field of architecture, in particular by

  • creating a national platform with international visibility
  • positioning itself on fundamental issues of teaching and research, especially with regard  to scientific evaluations
  • maintaining contacts with politics, professional organisations and industry

The Architecture Council supports the dual education system. 

The Architecture Council may – alone or together with other organisations – take on additional tasks in the interest of Swiss architecture schools. It ensures that appropriate communications are maintained with European bodies.
