On this course you will examine these two sensibilities working across the disciplines of architecture, art and cultural geography, combining critical debate and creative practice to aid your development as a designer of future urban environments.
The course, based in the School of Architecture and Design, is highly experimental and aims to stretch your imagination and critical ability.
You will produce innovative portfolios and learn about the issues of global urban environments, expanding your knowledge beyond the usual subject boundaries.
