Design Practice MArch at Royal College of Art

The Design Practice MArch course at the Royal College of Art teaches students to critique the impact of the built environment on the climate and how to design sustainable architecture for the future.

School: Royal College of Art, School of Architecture
Course: Design Practice MArch
Location: London, UK
Course dates: September 2023 to August 2024
Application deadline: 1 September 2023

The MArch Design Practice is a one-year programme that supports the creative and critical engagement of architects, designers, and spatial practitioners with the design of the built environment.

With climate as a central focus, students will consider how reuse, materials, waste and embodied carbon intersect with economics, politics and identity to produce new opportunities for design practice in the transition toward a fair and flourishing world.

Students will critically engage with the planetary implications of construction and make bold, rigorous and informed design propositions through which a world can otherwise be built.

Students will be introduced to various methods and theories drawn from around the world that aim to deliver renewable and equitable futures.

Students are encouraged to draw on their existing practices and experiences and to use skills gained from the programme to propose interventions into existing architectural models or develop new forms of practice.
