The MA in Architecture and Urbanism builds upon UEL's legacy of world-leading form generation through computational design explored through the work of the university?s late senior lecturer, Paul Coates. This involves using parametric and object-oriented design methodologies seamlessly with rapid manufacturing and visualization techniques available within the school. Whether you want to expand your field of expertise, or deepen it, this unique one-year course will enrich your knowledge and enhance your career in the fields of Advanced Architectural, Urban Design and Digital Fabrication. The course is aimed at architecture graduates wishing to specialize in advanced digital design processes, and at those within the ?built environment? ? such as planners, psychologists, quantity surveyors or designers.
Along the course Advanced Architectural Design, Parametric Urban Design, Digital Manufacturing will be developed across the year following a common digital platform which simulates the state of the art of design processes in contemporary architectural practices. The goal is experimenting new possibilities for architectural spaces and cities connecting the design to advanced fabrication techniques and sustainable strategies in order to generate a research leading to a secure impact in the industry.
What You'll Learn
The Masters is structured in three terms which will explore a holistic approach to digital architecture and urban design following the ?systemic design? paradigm which uses advanced methods of concept generation, context analysis, programmatic control and performance assessment to achieve a high level of multidisciplinary design coordination.
proceeding to your concluding thesis. The thesis submission will focus on the manufacturing process of a large scale component or a physical model of the building/master plan. It will include a written dissertation to complement your studies with a critical reflection on processes and choices made along the course.
Your Future Career
This course is ideal if you are a practitioner or recent graduate wishing to diversify your knowledge of built environment disciplines.
The course will help you shift your architectural practice into a new field or direction.
The course will give you a better understanding of contemporary practice within European and global contexts and help you develop your critical design or writing and thinking skills.
The course will offer you a specialized expertise that could help to take your career in an upward, and perhaps different, direction.
