Course summary

Course overview

At Central Saint Martins, M ARCH: Architecture draws on the dynamic design thinking and making skills from different practices. This ranges from art to curation, graphic communication design to fashion and performance to product design. On this course, you will develop new insights, solutions and methods to explore new forms of architecture. Through research and intervention, you will address the challenges of a rapidly changing urban environment.

The course focuses on the needs of a wide range of participants in the human environment. Architects can play a crucial role in supporting communities and individuals. With a certain approach, they can help them benefit from change in the urban landscape. Through collaborative engagement with local users, architects can empower communities to become active participants in the process of development. This builds cultural and social, as well as economic, capital. M ARCH: Architecture shifts the emphasis from the design of physical space alone, to interventions in its production. You will address this through live projects which engage with the reality of cities and their citizens. You will learn the constraints and conditions of designing in the real world.

Large-scale, master-plan developments in urban centres are only the more visible forms of change within the city. While these may create economic benefit, their long-term sustainability can be limited. Carefully defined, small-scale interventions can also lead to dramatic and large transformations. These can be sustained over longer periods, as they may better serve multiple stakeholders. For the future architect, skills that foster and guide innovation will be of greatest value. On M ARCH: Architecture, you will gain the design skills to create sustainable transformations in the urban environment. You will learn to recognise the potential of architecture at different scales and modes of operation – whether in driving small-scale design transformations or enabling large-scale development.


M ARCH: Architecture prepares graduates for employment in architectural practice, urban design, planning, development, and public consultation. In addition, the course provides a solid grounding for continued academic development toward research and PhD study.

Drawing upon extensive industry links within the Spatial Practices Programme, the Course seeks to offer students a unique learning opportunity to engage with live projects and real clients, developing innovative approaches to public engagement and a radical reconsideration of architectural practice.
