Cinematic and Videogame Architecture MArch at The Bartlett School of Architecture

The Cinematic and Videogame Architecture MArch course at The Bartlett School of Architecture requires students to create projects that combine architecture, film and videogame design.

School: The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL
Course: Cinematic and Videogame Architecture MArch
Location: London, UK
Course dates: September 2024 to September 2025
Application deadline: 5 April, 2024

The first programme of its kind in the UK, the Cinematic and Videogame Architecture MArch course teaches students to employ innovative architectural design methods using cinematic, animation and gaming technologies.

Students will critically situate their work in relation to new developments in time-based digital media and how they shape our culture, identity and politics.

Taught by internationally renowned experts in cutting-edge digital technologies, the programme will be based at UCL's new campus, UCL East, and make use of new, state-of-the-art facilities with shared specialist media and workshop spaces.

The programme is founded on a strong and experimental practice-led studio element, where practical learning is supported by robust theoretical research.

Students will engage with theoretical concepts through lectures and introductory design projects, supported by digital skills modules.

This cross-disciplinary approach allows students to test ideas and invent new research methods, leading to the production of architectural design projects that are developed and realised through films, video games and hybrid digital-physical environments.

Students will gain technical skills and explore time-based, storytelling and interactive media as new platforms for engaging with the design and production of space, from the domestic to the urban.

Graduates will develop advanced skills applicable in the fields of architecture and architectural visualisation, and gain expertise that can form the foundation for careers in immersive environments, film and videogame industries.
