The programme informs you about the latest knowledge of architecture and urban design in order to prepare you to become a successful professionals working on a global scale.
Overview You are taught how to combine academic analysis with the development of creative and intellectual skills. We regard theory and practice of architecture as equally important, and believe that joint effort and excellence in both areas are necessary for communicating architecture and urban design competently and successfully. You are encouraged to develop your creative and imaginative abilities; to produce ideas and undertake work that conveys your understanding of architecture and cities in fresh and effective ways.
You learn how to approach contemporary architecture and cities and their relation to the society, culture and arts including film and theatre. Through the analysis of wider social and environmental aspects and through modeling of cities’ life and its dynamic forces, programme considers the ways in which both the heritage buildings and the new design proposals can facilitate in the sustainable development of cities in the future.
Kent School of Architecture and Planning (KSAP) has developed a unique partnership with Farrells, the internationally renowned architects and urban planners. John Letherland, former Head of Master Planning, currently leads a design module for all students on this programme.
