Course summary

This course will provide you with a critical understanding of the relationship between architecture and ecology. You'll look at both from a theoretical perspective. This will be done by instructional modules taken at Strathclyde in Glasgow during the first three months of study. The practical demonstration of this relationship will be through project work at the urban laboratory Arcosanti in Arizona. This is a unique opportunity to study your Master’s degree while living and working at Arcosanti, helping to research, design and construct an alternative to urban sprawl, joining thousands of people who, since Arcosanti’s launch in 1970, have already been part of “one of the most important urban experiments in our lifetime” (Newsweek).


Design Management, Financial Engineering, Project Management, Risk Management, Environmental Impact Assessment, Knowledge Information Management for Engineers, Urban Design History, Ecology Sustainability and the Built Environment, Arcology, Architectural and Construction History and Energy Resources and Policy
