Course content

The MSc in Reflective Design Practices (RDP) is focused on the particular styles of thinking and action implicated in the practice of architecture and the forms of knowledge that result. The programme is designed for experienced practitioners who have assembled a significant body of built work, and have a record of critical and creative engagement with the discipline of architecture.

The programme offers appropriately experienced practitioners an opportunity to audit, review, and reflect critically on the nature of their practice. This work is intended to serve as a platform from which to negotiate " invent, propose, chart, speculate upon " possible future directions of their practice. The programme is underpinned by a wider commitment to the idea of the reflective practitioner as a basis for creatively engaging with the rapidly changing contours of contemporary society.
