MArch Architecture (ARB/RIBA Part Part II)

University of Westminster - Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment
Campus 2 years September 2017 United Kingdom London

The MArch (Part 2) is a long-established and well-respected course that is prescribed by the ARB and validated by the RIBA to give exemption from the second stage of professional education. The emphasis of the course is on innovative design work, and on developing a caring and critical approach to the study and practice of architecture. [+]

Part time Masters in Arts in England in United Kingdom. The MArch (Part 2) is a long-established and well-respected course that is prescribed by the ARB and validated by the RIBA to give exemption from the second stage of professional education. The emphasis of the course is on innovative design work, and on developing a caring and critical approach to the study and practice of architecture. The course fosters diversity of choice, interpretation and approach, whether in design projects or more academic research. The former focuses on sophisticated design programmes (in formal, technical, professional or urban terms) that demand rigour and self-criticism. The latter focuses on your major dissertation, an extended piece of specialised research into architecture and its historical or theoretical contexts. The course has three main objectives: to develop your design ability through project-based experimentation; to present an evaluation and critique of your coursework within a broad cultural context, and in light of technical, economic and legal constraints; and to promote the articulate explanation and representation of quality and value in design projects. Core modules DESIGN PROJECT 1 (YEAR 1 DESIGN STUDIO) This single design project, or series of linked design projects, is individual to each elective Design Studio, and is run in parallel with the Year 2 Design Studio. You choose your Design Studio following presentations by all the Design Studio tutors at the beginning of the academic year; each Design Studio offers a new project every year. Projects lead from exploratory research to the development of an individual brief, and a design proposal which you develop for assessment at the end of Semester One. DIGITAL REPRESENTATION This module focuses on digital media technology and computer-based strategies, including the principles of 2D and 3D computer drawing, modelling, rendering, animation and digital fabrication techniques. The module aims to extend your practical and theoretical understanding of advanced digital media, as well as to enhance your existing computing knowledge and skills - so assessment is on a 'value-added' basis. PROFESSIONAL STUDIES This module draws on your work experience and introduces statutory, professional and management concepts related to the 'professional' development of your coursework. It asks you to reflect on your prior experience and personal development, and to identify areas for future investigation. The module introduces you to the role of the architect in the construction industry (including development and procurement issues), and to the professional, managerial and legal constraints that influence the work of the architect in practice. DESIGN PROJECT 2 (YEAR 1 DESIGN STUDIO) Commonly, though not exclusively, the theme or context of Design Project 2 involves developing or testing aspects of the Design Project 1 through further research or exploratory projects. This module, however, places greater emphasis on the detailed resolution of the individual design proposal, often at a larger scale, and deals more explicitly with the issues of programme, materiality, technology and environmental impact. The module is run in parallel with the Year 2 Design Studio. HISTORY AND THEORY This module consists of specialist seminar study and a series of wider module-wide lectures, and begins a year-long study of architectural history and theory which culminates with your dissertation submission in Year 2. Following presentations by all the seminar group leaders at the beginning of the semester, you choose a seminar group with its own particular theme and programme of study. Based on this, you select an individual area of research, and develop it through writing and a presentation; you also prepare an abstract for your Dissertation. TECHNICAL STUDIES IN PRACTICE This module requires you, individually or within a group, to carry out research into different approaches to, and kinds of, technology and environmental design. You will need to look at the wider cultural issues involved, but more especially at issues of sustainability in design. This is expected to inform your Design Studio project work. DISSERTATION The Dissertation is the primary focus of Architectural History and Theory teaching, and the main written component of the course. Building on your abstract, you research into primary and secondary sources, define and refine a methodology, produce a draft synopsis, and, finally, complete a 10,000-word dissertation with footnotes, bibliography and illustrations. If you explore another mode of study, such as making a film or designing a website, you will still need to meet a lower word limit of 6,000 words. MAIN DESIGN PROJECT (YEAR 2 DESIGN STUDIO) As with Design Studio 1, this is individual to each elective Design Studio, and you choose your Design Studio following presentations by all the Design Studio tutors at the beginning of the academic year. The module is integrated with the subsequent Design Development module, and these two modules usually create a single overarching project for the final academic year. The modules is run in parallel with the Year 1 Design Studio, however, Year 2 students are expected to pursue, and resolve, a more ambitious and sophisticated thesis. APPLIED TECHNICAL STUDIES In this module you complete an applied technical study concurrent with the progression of your main Design Studio project. This integrated report explains and deepens the environmental, structural and constructional strategies inherent to your design thinking and your project. DESIGN DEVELOPMENT (YEAR 2 DESIGN STUDIO) This module follows on from the Main Design Project, and asks you to elaborate, test, adapt and develop your design project proposal to produce a well-resolved architectural design. This module encourages you to communicate your ideas, research work and design proposals in a range of media at an advanced level. You also integrate your presentation with your work in the Strategic Report and Applied Technical Studies modules. The module is run in parallel with the Year 1 Design Studio. STRATEGIC REPORT This module is a substantial report that is integrated with your main Design Studio project, and the Applied Technical Studies modules. The report focuses on exploring and explaining the critical project decisions made as part of the design process. The module introduces you to various approaches to the report - methodologies, techniques, selected building precedents - through seminars and Design Studio group tutorials. Course-specific entry requirements You are required to have an undergraduate degree in Architecture, or similar, with a high level of achievement, which will normally be validated by the RIBA for Part 1/prescribed by the ARB for Part 1. You will usually have one year's (post-degree) professional experience. At interview, you should present your academic portfolio together with examples of work undertaken during professional training, and any relevant contextual material. If your first language is not English you will need an IELTS score of 7.0, with a minumum of 6.5 in all components. Associated careers Most students who complete the Architecture MArch (Part 2) are subsequently employed in architectural offices, and become registered architects after taking the Part 3 exam. Others progress to take further Masters or PhD degrees, and then go into research and/or teaching. [-]

This is a collective process: you will share ideas and insights with your fellow students, learning how others see the world. Inspiring each other to look beyond borders and to venture away from the beaten track. At the same time you will extend your knowledge, master new skills and reflect on your role as an artist. This master attracts students from a lot of different backgrounds, countries and cultures. This variety enriches your experience, not only broadening your personal perspective but also giving you the opportunity to build a valuable international network. You will develop your own artistic vision, working in a hybrid practice and taking the opportunity to share your art with the world. Structure Before you are admitted to the master programme MADTech, you will draw up a broad outline of the artistic research you want to carry out. What is it that fascinates you about art and technology? What experiments would you like to carry out? During the admissions procedure you will discuss your ideas with us. Once admitted, your ideas form the start of the next two years. The first year of this master programme is mostly about exploring your chosen field.

Master Governing the Large Metropolis Programme objectives The Master's programme Governing the Large Metropolis aims to prepare graduates for work on public policy issues in a variety of large metropolises beyond Europe, in relation to different types of organizations and agencies. The world cities and urban sprawl of both the global North and the global South face massive public policy and governance challenges. The scale and speed of urbanization raise a plethora of issues, which are all covered in the programme. These include: economic development, poverty and slums, housing, health, technological and social innovation, the management of risk, infrastructure, water and waste disposal, changing labour markets, sustainable development, democratic participation. Governing populations divided and organized by class, income, religion, ethnic origin, mobility and/or gender has become even more difficult in a globalizing world where opportunities for mobility, participation in overlapping networks, interdependence and the scale of large urban regions make classic territorial conceptions of government and public policies partly obsolete. Students receive rigorous methodological training, experience from international professionals and exposure to high level academic content. The programme is taught entirely in English with a great emphasis on issues of comparative study. No ready made recipes are provided, and no simple fairy stories on the so called "best practices of good governance": the programme trains the students with a strong critical approach and management skills so as to be competent for project accounting and decision making to implement urban policy in critical environments. Systematic relations are built with urban professionals and research groups, including cities such as Bogotà, Lima, Mexico, Rio, Sao Paulo, Lagos, Beijing, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Istanbul, Cairo, New Delhi, Shanghai, Tokyo and Johannesburg. Going beyond geography, development studies and physical planning, the Master's programme aims at training young professionals who will take charge of public policy design and implementation in the governance of large cities in the future. Main orientations and specific features The two-year programme comprises a mix of sound interdisciplinary theoretical courses, case studies, methods and professional training: Theoretical training focuses on public policy, sociology, governance, law, economics, demography, risk and globalization, centering on issues such as housing, migration, food security, utilities, climate change, informal economy, local finance, conflict management, transports, cultural policies, and the digital city; Professional training is provided in the first year through a group project (capstone) commissioned by a private or public organization, which involves doing applied research in the urban field. Students work 1.5 days a week for six months with a professional tutor. Students also take advantage of a planned study trip to a large urban center (past cities include Cairo, Istanbul, Casablanca/Tangier/Rabat). Case studies and workshops are taught by professionals; Solid methodological training in advanced quantitative and qualitative analysis, network analysis, map work, ecological data mining, and GIS training; In the second semester, regional training focuses on specific area of expertise, with historical insights on urban change. Students have to chose among African Metropolis, Arab and Mediterranean Metropolis, Asian Metropolis, Latin American Metropolis, and North American Metropolis; In the final semester, students will either undertake an internship of at least 14 weeks in a large metropolis or will spend the semester within a partner university, where they will prepare a research thesis (for those envisaging a PhD). During the whole duration of the programme, students are assisted in their course and professional orientation through a regular vocational statement exercise. The programme works in collaboration with other programmes from the Urban School. It also has a close link with research conducted at Sciences Po, notably with the research program "Cities are back in town". Career opportunities Students will have opportunities to work in the following organisations: UN organisations; Environment, health, security and food organisations; Global utility firms (water, transport, waste disposals, energy); NGO's in different sectors (democratic governance, environment, housing, development, culture…); Urban planning agencies, economic development agencies, urban political organisations; Networks of cities (C40, ICLEI etc..); Urban and regional governments; Private foundations and think tanks; Private developers and international consultants in the large metropolis.
