Course summary

This degree offers a lively and thought-provoking introduction to important ideas about architecture and cities. We place particular emphasis on the idea of ‘alternative practice’; a radical approach that aims to encourage people to actively participate in the design of their environment. We use practical case studies, historical examples, theoretical ideas and a live community project to support your understanding of how architecture and cities can be developed.
