MA Architecture and and Urbanism


Course Description

Taking an international perspective, this programme explores innovative approaches to design and intervention in the city, investigating relationships between built form, space, culture, developmental processes and sustainability, within an interdisciplinary, project based dialogue.

Over 50% of the World’s six billion people now live in cities. By 2050 this will have passed 80%; the future is urban.

The programme covers research methodologies, cities and urban ideologies and urban futures. In addition you will work in Studios in groupings with complimentary research interests led by a tutor with expertise in the area.

Through this course you will begin to engage directly with a chosen research subject area, gather data and formulate an original approach in your practice. You will synthesise your project culminating in the production of a leading-edge proposition until you present and contextualise your thesis. This internationally based course actively disseminates students’ thesis work through conferences, exhibitions, competitions and publication.
