Months of entry
This Master's programme pioneers a fresh and critical approach that promotes architectural and artistic interventions which rejuvenate and reinterpret historic urban environments at all scales. Students work with leading historians, theorists and practitioners to offer creative solutions which enable historic urban environments to thrive, rather than just survive.
The Bartlett School of Architecture is widely regarded as one of the leading architectural schools in the world, with a strong reputation for generating knowledge and insights in architectural design, building technology and architectural history and theory.
In October 2013, the renowned Survey of London team moved to join the school, providing an opportunity to launch this new programme which also draws upon the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research expertise within the Bartlett, UCL's Faculty of the Built Environment, as well as the cross-faculty UCL Urban Laboratory, and within the university generally.
The programme includes modules that investigate numerous international case studies which gives students the opportunity to carry out design research work in cities outside the UK should they wish to. A field trip each year to a non-UK city will provide staff and students with the knowledge of, and links to, those who are working at the forefront of architectural and urban heritage internationally.
