Our new Experimental Architecture MSc is based on visionary architectural practice that deals with global 21st century challenges, preparing you for a rapidly evolving professional environment.
Architecture is an evolving profession that is being shaped by global challenges, such as rapidly rising populations and emerging technologies. This forward-focussed course engages architectural agendas whilst providing opportunities for you to develop your intellectual and practical skills in this changing world.
Our approach is grounded in experimental design-led methodology. You will work with new types of materials, methods and technologies that create the context for social, political, economic and cultural reflection.
Through our course you will be exposed to some of the most important thinkers and practitioners at the cutting-edge of architectural practice and research. You will be encouraged to challenge architectural practice and produce provocative and visionary architectural design work that is also grounded and rigorous.
Ultimately, this unique course offers you the scope and depth of design and research for you to create a world-class portfolio.
The course has strong links with the Urban Design Group (UDG) and one of our graduates won the student prize at the National Urban Design Awards 2014. Sarah Cawrse talks about her winning submission ‘Designing Incentives for Healthy Lifestyles: Promoting food access, physical activity and social interaction through design’, which was based on Elswick in Newcastle.
