AA School of Architecture

Course Introduction

The programme engages architecture with the challenges of contemporary urban strategies. Today's metropolitan regions show tremendous diversity and complexity, with significant global shifts in the patterns of urban growth and decline. Architecture has a central role to play in this dynamic context, developing spatial strategies as part of urban policies and generating new urban clusters and types. This course focuses on important changes in the contemporary urban condition and investigates how architectural intelligence helps us to understand and respond to these trends.
