Architectural Design MArch

 

This programme explores the frontiers of architecture and design, with an emphasis on the latest technological advances, particularly computation and robotics.

 

About

 

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.

 

Highlights

 

– Gain an understanding of the role computation plays in complex design synthesis

– Work with an international body of experts and students

– Be introduced to highly advanced coding, fabrication and robotic skills, and the latest approaches to AI, CNC fabrication, 3D printing, supercomputing, simulation and interactivity

– Have access to B-made workshop facilities and fabrication expertise unrivalled in the UK

A design/creative portfolio is also expected. Applicants will be asked to submit a portfolio of their design work once their completed application has been received, and should not send or upload work until it has been requested.

 

Application deadline

 

Applications open for this programme on 01 November 2019 and close on 24 July 2020.

 

We strongly advise early application, as our programmes are over subscribed and competition is high.

About this degree

 

Students engage critically with new developments in technology, which are rapidly changing the landscape of architecture, its social and economic role and its effectiveness in industry applications. Placing advanced design at its core, the Architectural Design programme devotes a high proportion of its time to studio-based design enquiry, culminating in a major project and thesis.

 

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

 

Students are introduced to the theoretical concepts which underpin Architectural Design through lectures and initial design projects. Students then undertake a thesis project, a report and work in specialist teaching groups. Modules are design-based with specialist lecture input.

 

Upon successful completion of 180 credits, you will be awarded a MArch in Architectural Design.
