In a world where established customs, systems and structures are increasingly unstable, we need a different kind of architectural thinking. On M ARCH: Architecture, you will address the challenges of contemporary society through the built environment. This course is part of the Spatial Practices programme.
At Central Saint Martins, M ARCH: Architecture draws on the dynamic design thinking and making skills from different practices. This ranges from art to curation, graphic communication design to fashion and performance to product design. On this course, you will develop new insights, solutions and methods to explore new forms of architecture. Through research and intervention, you will address the challenges of a rapidly changing urban environment.
The course focuses on the needs of a wide range of participants in the human environment. Architects can play a crucial role in supporting communities and individuals. With a certain approach, they can help them benefit from change in the urban landscape. Through collaborative engagement with local users, architects can empower communities to become active participants in the process of development. This builds cultural and social, as well as economic, capital. M ARCH: Architecture shifts the emphasis from the design of physical space alone, to interventions in its production. You will address this through live projects which engage with the reality of cities and their citizens. You will learn the constraints and conditions of designing in the real world.
