The programme provides specialist training in design for candidates who already hold a first degree in architecture.
The programme aims to expose candidates to a range of cutting-edge approaches, strategies, research and experimentation techniques in architectural design.
The programme is structured around a series of design projects, augmented by lecture/seminar-based teaching in urban design and contemporary architectural theory.
The programme also involves fieldwork in a selected European city. Previous destinations include Florence, Olbia, Bari, Mumbai and Calcutta.
Graduates of this programme will have the capacity to:
demonstrate leadership within an architectural design-team context
critically evaluate the possible roles architectural design plays within the larger field of cultural production
comprehend some of the key consequences digital media have for the conception, design and representation of architecture
On completion of this programme, you will have added a significant qualification to your existing architectural degree, one that is held in high regard by potential employers. The skills and learning you will gain will help you to pursue your career at a higher level, or branch out into a particular specialism.
