Students on this programme undertake studio-based design enquiry, working with tutors and practitioners towards a major speculative design project and thesis. Design teaching is structured into research clusters, each with its own research specialism.
Programme Director: Gilles Retsin
Students on this programme work within research clusters to explore new ideas in both design and theory, developing a complex understanding of the city as a place of human coexistence. The programme provides the opportunity for students to discover new design skills, using specialist tools and technology.
Programme Director: Roberto Bottazzi
Throughout either an MSc or MRes degree, students develop the depth of understanding needed to exploit computation to create architectural solutions for the future. Students are taught programming skills alongside advanced theory, and work in research clusters to undertake studio-based research.
Programme Director: Manuel Jimenez Garcia
Taught jointly by The Bartlett School of Architecture and UCL’s Biochemical Engineering Department, Bio-Integrated Design combines scientiﬁc methods with design experimentations. Students explore how advances in the ﬁelds of biotechnology, synthetic biology and material science are changing architectural design.
Programme Directors: Professor Marcos Cruz and Dr Brenda Parker
This programme investigates interventions in the landscape though imaginative design, strategic thinking and technical knowledge, equipping students to progress towards a career as a landscape architect. The programme is taken over one or two years, depending on the student’s prior experience.
Programme Directors: Professor Laura Allen and Professor Mark Smout
This programme pioneers a fresh and critical approach that promotes architectural interventions which rejuvenate and reinterpret historic urban environments at all scales. Alongside developing a robust theoretical and practical understanding of sites, students develop their own design practice.
