Months of entry
The programme encourages students to develop advanced and speculative approaches to the design of cities, landscape and territories. It promotes high design values and the integration of new and innovative technologies to address the challenges facing contemporary cities, such as urban growth, climate change, globalisation and social inequality. The programme is designed for students of architecture, landscape architecture, engineering and related disciplines, who wish to enhance their academic, intellectual and professional skills.
The programme interrogates the growing influence of landscape on urban, social and ecological processes. It provides a platform from which to address the conditions of contemporary urbanism, such as extreme environmental events, shifting economic agendas, new forms of public space and the transformations to urban infrastructures. And it employs advanced design techniques and innovative methodologies to develop speculative designs, strategies and interventions.
The aims of the programme are to:
- Interrogate, and speculate on, the emerging ecologies between people, design, technology and the environment
- Research the conditions of urbanism through the lens of landscape theory and design practice
- Employ advanced design techniques and innovative methodologies through site-based projects.
