Course content

Digital technologies are changing the way buildings and urban spaces are designed, constructed and inhabited. On this course, you’ll gain the skills required to produce innovative architecture in the digital era.

The past decade has shown growing expectations for built spaces with capacity to respond dynamically to future challenges such as climate change and ageing populations. On this course you will use advanced computational methods, tools and processes to develop technologically, socially and environmentally responsive architecture which meets the challenges of sustainable and liveable intelligent cities.

You will undertake a rich array of modules and use a creative blend of techniques to produce innovative digital architecture. The studio and dissertation projects allow you to apply your digital design knowledge and skills creatively, guided by tutors.

Through our teaching and research, we explore the social, spatial and environmental implications of architecture. As a Sheffield student you will engage with real issues affecting the built environment.
