Your 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 and global connectivity, and shifting cultural, economic, ecological, political, social and physical conditions and demands.

Careers with this subject

Graduates have career opportunities in architectural design, public realm design, urban/landscape design, interdisciplinary design practice, spatial innovation and architectural humanities associated to the architectural profession.

Key features

  • Our school was described as ‘charged’ by Architects’ Journal.
  • Get creative with our amazing facilities and resources. You’ll be based in our eye-catching Faculty of Arts and Humanities building in the heart of the campus, with students and staff from other art courses to bounce ideas off and collaborate with. And, you’ll have two square metres of desk to call your own.
  • Interact with the public domain with architecture that’s responsive to people, places and tectonics. Work with local communities and institutions, including city councils, business organisations and non-governmental organisations.
  • Work on live studio-based projects, both in the UK and abroad. Previous overseas projects have been based in China, Spain, Portugal, Latvia and Poland.
  • Benefit from our future-facing programme that features a strong urban and sustainability dimension.
  • Learn from tutors with industry experience and interdisciplinary research interests.

You will undertake architectural design studio projects that immerse you within spatial debates and cross-disciplinary activities, including working on live projects, community engagement and public events. Supporting your work in the design studio, you will engage with emerging research in architecture, connecting sustainable practices and integrated technology. You will generate a dissertation through detailed design development of a selected aspect of your design studio work. Support is provided in the design studio through weekly tutorials, workshops and seminars. All students will be encouraged to develop a personal and critical path of design discovery. The studio culture fosters a unique design-led research practice, converging theory, design and technology.
