|Degree:||Master of Architecture (MArch)|
Define a new agenda for architecture. Building on your RIBA Part 1 qualification and professional practice year, you’ll work on socially engaged live projects while exploring the key architectural concepts and challenges of our time.
Throughout this course, you'll explore the relationship between architecture, places and people through the principles of radical regionalism and sustainable design methodologies. With practising lecturers, high-profile industry guests and the opportunity to work on live build projects, you'll also develop and refine your own participatory design practice.
This course is in the process of pursuing RIBA validation and ARB Part II prescription for spring 2022 and we will update the course page to reflect the outcome.
Through exploring the vital connections between architects, communities and the built and natural environment, you’ll generate complex designs that test new architectural hypotheses. You’ll also learn to critically reflect at every step of the design process – a crucial skill within this challenging industry.
This course is primarily delivered through integrated studio design projects, as well as lectures, seminars and workshops delivered by specialists.
Students will be required to attend Falmouth University for three weeks out of a 12-week study block. That means a total of six weeks on campus over the two study blocks of an academic year. Study Block 1 runs from September to December and Study Block 2 runs from January to May.
In addition to the time here at Falmouth, students will need to dedicate time during their working week in practice to develop their design work and take part in online learning activities. These will take the form of tutorials, peer-to-peer reviews and conversations as your work develops.
Blended learning is taught through intensive on-campus activities supplemented by online, at-distance learning.
Assessment will be through coursework.
