Architecture Studies

The Master of Science, or MSc, is an academic degree awarded to those who effectively complete about two years of intensive study on a given topic. Many MSc courses offer a combination of classroom and research-based curriculum.

The process of creating a well-made structure entails a great deal more than just propping up four walls. Knowledge of architecture is needed in order to ensure that buildings meet predetermined desires and legal guidelines.

UK, United Kingdom is more than 300 years old and comprises four constituent nations: England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The UK has been a centre of learning for the past 1,000 years and possesses many ancient and distinguished universities. Foreign students make up a significant proportion of the student body at UK universities.

MSc in Architecture and Environmental Design

University of Westminster - Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment
Campus Full time Part time 1 - 2 years September 2018 United Kingdom London + 1 more

This interdisciplinary and international course will provide you with skills that can be applied to diverse building typologies and global climatic, environmental and contextual issues. On completion of this course you will have a thorough understanding of the principles and methodology of environmental design and will develop critical thinking skills to challenge established practices. [+]

Master of Science Programs in Architecture Studies in Greater London in United Kingdom. The global environmental and energy challenge facing current and future generations of architects and building professionals calls for a deeper understanding of the principles of environmental design, and their effective application into architectural practice worldwide. Over the last decades environmental design as a subject area has developed, responding to new research and experimentation, both in academia and in practice. However, buildings claiming to be environmentally conscious do not perform to the expected standards, still heavily contributing to global CO2 emissions and often providing unsatisfactory comfort conditions to occupants. The same can be said for the existing built environment which is largely outdated and underperforming, requiring urgent implementation of effective retrofit strategies. This is due to a lack of comprehensive performance prediction and feedback protocols, which are still not common practice in architectural design. Course content Students on this course will take a fresh critical look at this subject. Here you will gain the knowledge and tools to make informed design decisions based on post-occupancy feedback and performance analysis, towards a new paradigm of environmental architecture, which is environmentally and energy conscious, yet sensitive to the contextual and socio-cultural landscape we live in. You will learn environmental design methods which relate to the various stages of architectural design. You will be able to evaluate existing buildings and design new ones following a combined bioclimatic and building occupant focused approach. In the core design modules you will follow an... [-]

MSc Advanced Landscape and Urbanism

University of Greenwich
Campus Full time 1 - 2 years August 2018 United Kingdom London

The programme encourages students to develop advanced and speculative approaches to the design of cities, landscape and territories. It promotes high design values and the integration of new and innovative technologies to address the challenges facing contemporary cities, such as urban growth, climate change, globalisation and social inequality. The programme is designed for students of architecture, landscape architecture, engineering and related disciplines, who wish to enhance their academic, intellectual and professional skills. [+]

The MSc Advanced Landscape and Urbanism encourages students to develop inventive and speculative approaches to the design of cities, landscape and territories. It promotes distinct design and research methods and the integration of new and innovative technologies to explore the complexity of contemporary cities, including issues of urban growth, climate change, globalisation and social inequality. The programme is designed for students of architecture, landscape architecture, design and related disciplines, who wish to enhance their academic, intellectual and professional skills. The programme interrogates the growing influence of landscape processes on the design of future cities and environments. It provides a platform from which to rethink approaches to contemporary urban design, to consider extreme environmental events, shifting economic agendas, new forms of public space and the transformations to urban infrastructures. The MSc Advanced Landscape and Urbanism focuses on design studio projects informed by classes in landscape and urbanism theory, design ecologies, future representation and design research methodologies. Details of international events, open lectures and student work can be found on: www.thelandscape.org/ Graduates from the MSc Advanced Landscape and Urbanism join or establish leading design practice or continue their design and research ambitions through PhD studies. The aims of the programme are to: - Interrogate, and speculate on, the emerging ecologies between people, design, technology and the environment - Research the conditions of urbanism through the lens of landscape theory and design practice - Employ advanced design techniques and innovative methodologies through sitebased projects. Contents Students are required to study the following compulsory... [-]
