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.
Architecture 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.
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.
You will gain the design skills to create sustainable transformations in the urban environment.
