The new MA Architecture is a one-year full-time programme focused around design and design technology. This study will be set in an exploration of new urban forms which are being generated in response to the changing nature of cities, notably increasing regional/global connectivity, and shifting cultural, economic, ecological, political, social and physical conditions and demands.
The MA Architecture builds on the strength of the successful RIBA-validated M Arch programme. Students on the MA Architecture will work alongside students on the M Arch programme through common coursework and projects, and sharing studio space with M Arch students. Students will also have opportunity to work with students from the MA Planning programme.
