The Master in Architecture builds upon skills students gained in their undergraduate studies by providing a challenging, supportive and collaborative environment embedding culture, context and technologies in the design process. 

The core of the course are the thematic design studios, a palette of themes and explorations which signpost possible pathways for the students to determine their interests and agendas. This year, the six studios were:

  • Studio A: Design Through Proposition
  • Studio B: Latent Dynamics: Waste(d) Cityscapes
  • Studio C: Dwelling Patterns
  • Studio D: Future Architectures: Time Machines
  • Studio E: Architecture and Landscape Lab: Catalytic Edges
  • Studio F: Delirious Rome: Politics, Computation and Dark Ecologies

The course recognises and utilises the diversity of the coexistence of three different modes of learning (full-time, part-time and DA) and the multicultural backgrounds of our students and staff. We encourage students to be both introspective and outward facing in their design development, encouraging peer learning and engagement with external guests, structural and environmental engineers. All of the studios frame a distinct culture of innovation and enquiry within a critical yet always professional context.

Explore the culmination of two years of study animated by a strong belief in design as a social activity, technical investigation and professional integrity and our students’ leaps of imagination and rigour of thinking.
