Course content

Architectural Design at The Bartlett is invested in the frontiers of advanced architecture and design and its convergence with science and technology. Composed of an international staff of experts and students, this programme is designed to deliver diverse yet focused strands of speculative research, emphasising the key role computation plays within complex design synthesis.

Students develop an advanced, practical understanding of design-based, speculative research, spending around two thirds of their time in student-based design enquiry. The programme is organised into research clusters, each with their own research agendas, underpinned by the shared resources of technical tutorials, and theoretical lectures and seminars.

The programme brings together internationally renowned experts in cutting-edge design and fabrictaion. Students are introduced to theoretical concepts through lectures and introductory design projects, supported by computational and robotics skills-building workshops.

The Bartlett School of Architecture is renowned for preparing students for successful careers and has been ranked as the top architecture school in the UK by the Architects' Journal AJ100 for sixteen consecutive years. The school also enjoys an exceptional international reputation and is currently ranked number one in the world by the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019.
