Abstract (in English)

Although it’s still controversial that the concept of World Heritage can foster a unique academic faculty within the education-system of modern architects, it’s been commonly recognized that the educational framework of architecture and urban planning college should be enlarged with the help of the interdisciplinary exchange. The paper compared with a typical Architecture & Urban Planning school at Huazhong University of Science and Technology, one of the top 10 universities in China, and World Heritage Studies (WHS) program in the Faculty of Architecture at Cottbus University (BTU) in Germany, focusing on their framework-constructions of interdisciplinary exchange as well as the problems around the current architectural education. In the author’s point of view, the emergence of the WHS, is a sign of a new direction to modern architects’ education; moreover, it could be co-prosperous between this innovative program and the traditional architectural programs.
