Course summary

On this experimental and collaborative master’s course you will acquire the skills required to creatively shape our future urban environments – whether that’s the design of buildings, larger developments or landscapes.

You will work across the disciplines of architecture, art and cultural geography, combining critical debate and artistic practice to aid your development as a designer of physical settings.

The course is highly experimental, and we aim to stretch your imagination and critical ability. You will engage with research on the analysis of city spaces and explore the current issues of global urbanism. You will lead your own projects, speculating as to how urban environments will evolve, and graduate with a significant portfolio of work.

Against Brighton’s vibrant backdrop we offer a supportive studio environment, field trips and diverse workshops and seminars taught by architects and urban designers.
