Architectural Design MArch
University College of London – Bartlett School of Architecture. London, United Kingdom
Overseas: 31.200 €
The Architecture MArch is a two-year full-time Master’s degree which, in addition, leads to the award of ARB/RIBA Part 2. The programme has an international reputation and is generally regarded as one of the leading Part 2 programmes in the UK.
The MArch unit system of teaching ensures that an open, diverse and critical debate is sustained by the school on what constitutes architecture, and reinforces The Bartlett’s ethos that architectural knowledge and expertise is synthesised throughout the student’s own projects. Much of the current work by staff and students is at the forefront of developing new intellectual and formal concepts in global architecture discourse.
The programme consists of five core elements. The first year (known as Year Four) comprises three modules, followed by two modules in the final year (known as Year Five).
This programme explores the frontiers of advanced architecture and design, with an emphasis on the latest technological advances, particularly computation and robotics.
Design is a crucial agency for uncovering complex patterns. This programme belongs to the school’s suite of B-Pro programmes and explores the frontiers of advanced architecture and design and their convergence with science and technology.
Spending around two thirds of their time undertaking studio-based design enquiry, students work with internationally renowned researchers and practitioners towards a major speculative design project and thesis. The design modules are structured in groups known as research clusters, each with its own research specialism, and all underpinned by shared technical and theoretical resources and expertise.
Architectural Design MArch culminates in the annual B-Pro Show – an exhibition of student work, attracting thousands of visitors to the school’s central London home.
