A research-led Master’s degree exploring the history, theory and criticism of computational design and fabrication




One of the school’s B-Pro programmes, this programme explores digital theory, history and culture in relation to architecture and is led by world-renowned innovators in the field.


Conceived as a research laboratory, this programme offers a hybrid pedagogical format where learning and experiments, inspired by today’s evolving design technologies, are conversant with the culture of the design community, and informed by recent scholarship in the arts and humanities. The core of the programme is a year-long research project, where students develop an individual topic of their choosing within the broad areas of interest outlined below.


Students’ projects will be mentored by the programme’s tutors and by invited lecturers through individual tutorship and systematic teaching. Students will be encouraged to pursue a curatorial or research topic leading to an actual exhibition and/or publication.


Additionally, students will follow at least one lecture course on digital history and theory specific to this programme, as well as two courses chosen among modules currently taught in other Master’s programmes at The Bartlett, either in the design or in the technology fields.




– Develop an advanced knowledge of digital theory and architecture with leading academics and practitioners


– Be mentored throughout the year by an academic with expertise in your chosen area of research


– Bolster your research expertise with taught modules from other Master’s programmes at The Bartlett, as well the school’s rich schedule of seminars and lectures.
