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.

In Studio A you will begin to engage directly with a chosen research subject area/proposition. In Studio B you will develop individual research propositions, completing a literature survey, gathering data and formulating an original approach in thinking and/or practice. In Studio C you will synthesise the thesis project culminating in the production of a leading-edge proposition. Finally, in Studio D you will present and contextualise your thesis as an outstanding piece of work suitable for academic and/or public consumption.

You will study units in; Cities and Urbanism : Ideologies and Futures, Research Methodologies and Events, Studio A, Studio B, Studio C.
