Course content

The Architecture and Digital Theory MRes explores digital theory, history, and cultures, in all their guises: from design and fabrication, to many related fields and disciplines that are being affected and transformed by the new digital paradigm.

The Bartlett School of Architecture is a hotbed of research, design, theorising and discussion on and around architecture and digital theory. Leading academics and practitioners in this field, on matters of design and on history, theory and writing, are actively involved in teaching and research at the school.

The Bartlett is the UK's largest multidisciplinary Faculty of the Built Environment, bringing together scientific and professional specialisms required to research, understand, design, construct and operate the buildings and urban environments of the future. Located in London, we are at the heart of a large cluster of creative architects and engineering firms and with all the resources of a world city at hand. Conceived as a research laboratory, the programme offers a hybrid pedagogical format where learning and experiments, inspired by today\'s evolving design technologies, are informed by the culture of the design community and relevant recent scholarship in the arts and humanities.

A new MA version of the programme is also being developed. Applicants interested in this mode should contact Teaching and Learning Officer Mrs Thea Heintz.
