Course content

The Master of Architecture at AUB explores the possibilities of architectural practices that conceive and articulate diverse processes of community development and transformation.

This two-year, studio-based course which is accredited by ARB and RIBA, explores the possibilities of new architectural practices that make, innovate and collaborate, exploring diverse processes of community development and transformation.

The course aims to produce: performative, projective enablers and architecture, cutting into societies deepest darkest myths; building interventions in the utopias and dystopias past, present and future; and launching architectural careers and journeys via its laboratory practice, where the body and somatic practice is at the forefront.

You’ll work alongside fellow makers, collaborators and enablers who have come from different schools around the world and you will have the opportunity to collaborate across the arts. The courses unique location near a dramatic rolling and beautiful landscape, within a vibrant and energetic seaside town, provides great context and research for projects and interventions.

This MArch course will appeal to you if you are looking for something different and fresh in your route to becoming an architect in a changing world.
