Course content

The MArch in Architectural Studies programme is research and project driven with multi-disciplinary input in the areas of Urban Design and Creative Urban Practices, Urban Building, Computer Aided Architectural Design, and Energy and Environmental Studies.

The programme begins with a series of core lectures and seminars, balanced by focused reading of key literature related to the four areas of enquiry. This enables all of the students on the programme to gain a multi-disciplinary perspective and provides ground for shared discourse.

The Master of Architectural Studies pathways are:

  • Urban Design
  • Creative Urban Practices
  • Urban Building
  • Digital Creativity
  • Energy and Environmental Studies
  • History and Theory of the City
  • Zero-Energy Mass Customised Housing

The Core Lectures and Seminars form the background and basis for the preparation of two research papers and for identification and development of the the individual project.
