    Architectural Design Research & Mental Wealth 1

    The overall objective of the module is to enable you to work with intelligent, spatial and contextual design tasks that are developed through a critical understanding of theoretical, societal and ethical positions on architecture and the built environment.

    At this level (year 1 of the programme) the aim is to establish these intentions as part of your design process in order to prepare you for the other part of the design module, the next year of the programme and career progression. Specific design and theoretical agendas formulated by the different design units within the studio, aim to provide a choice of architectural itineraries to support and facilitate you in this process through an explorative approach to contextual design. In doing so you will begin to recognise the areas for your own personal and professional development (including emotional, social, physical, cultural and cognitive intelligences) through taught and workshop activity.

    Fundamental to this module is the open studio environment which allows you to be partially mentored in a variety of skillsets by your peers in the year above.

    Technical Environmental and Professional Studies 1

    The main aim of this module is:

    To study and critically reflect on the technical, environmental, professional and social factors that relate to architectural projects; expanding upon the undergraduate level knowledge in order to enable sophisticated strategies and techniques in the resolution of architectural designs.

    Close

    Theory and Cultural Studies 1

    The main aim of the module is:

    To study and critically reflect on key issues in the theory of architecture and the culture of the built environment, with specific regard to their relationship to architectural design at a postgraduate level through a choice of particular perspectives (the chosen theory route).

    Architectural Design Research & Mental Wealth 2

    The overall objective of the module is to enable you to work with complex, spatial and contextual design tasks that are developed through a critical understanding of theoretical, societal and ethical positions on architecture and the built environment.

    At this level (year 2 of the programme) the aim is to establish these intentions as part of your individual design process in order to prepare you for the other part of the design module and career progression. Specific design and theoretical agendas formulated by the different design units within the studio, aim to provide a choice of architectural itineraries to support and facilitate you in this process through an explorative approach to design. In doing so they will begin to recognise the areas for their own personal and professional development (including emotional, social, physical, cultural and cognitive intelligences) through taught and workshop activity. Fundamental to this module is the open studio environment which allows you to partially mentor a variety of skillsets to your peers in the year below.

    Architectural Design 2

    The overall objective of the module is to enable you to work with complex, spatial and contextual design tasks that are developed through a critical understanding and application of theoretical, societal and ethical positions on architecture and the built environment.

    At this level (year 2 of the programme) the aim is to synthesize these intentions in a coherent final architectural thesis proposal as part of your design process in order to prepare you for your career progression. Specific design and theoretical agendas formulated by the different design units within the studio, aim to provide a choice of architectural itineraries to support and facilitate you in this process through an explorative whilst systematic approach to architecture. In doing so you will recognise the areas for their academic and professional development.

    Fundamental to this module is the open studio environment which allows you to mentor in a variety of skillsets your peers in the year below.
