Summary

Architectural conservation - the action of conserving built heritage while maintaining its values - is practiced differently across the world; sometimes not at all due to cultural and economic constraints.

The course is a platform for: collaboration with both practice and research partners, architectural critique, discussion and debate. All full-time students take instructional classes and a design project in the first two semesters. MSc students then complete a dissertation project. The course is informed by the outcomes of the research being carried out at the Architectural Design and Conservation Research Unit (ADCRU). It is a platform for collaboration with both practice and research partners; architectural critique, discussion and debate are fundamental parts of the course.
