Study type Taught

Summary

Urbanism and urban design are ambiguous terms that surround and reflect both the physical and mental attributes applied to the built environment combining to form a layered knowledge of the city.

On this course you will examine these two sensibilities working across the disciplines of architecture, art and cultural geography, combining critical debate and creative practice to aid your development as a designer of future urban environments.

The course, based in the School of Architecture and Design, is highly experimental and aims to stretch your imagination and critical ability.

You will produce innovative portfolios and learn about the issues of global urban environments, expanding your knowledge beyond the usual subject boundaries.

Against Brighton’s vibrant, creative and diverse backdrop you will benefit from a supportive studio environment, two field trips and a variety of workshops and seminars, taught by active practitioners in architecture and urban design.

You will engage with research on the analysis of city spaces and lead your own projects, speculating as to how urban environments will evolve and be used in the future.
