MSc/PgDip in Architectural Design for the Conservation of Built Heritage Architectural conservation - the action of conserving built heritage while maintaining its values - is practiced differently across the world; sometimes not at all due to cultural and economic constraints. It is an emerging area of work which requires specialist training and knowledge to deal with its multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary nature. It also requires the development of a critical approach for the analysis and design of the intervention, informed by the shared international principles and the specific nature and context of the historic building to be conserved. We need to attract new talent to the field of architectural conservation. To work with historic buildings is an enriching experience, which combines the creative aspects of designing a new building with the in-depth research required to understand in full the building and its context. Working with historic buildings is also a great training to improve the design of new buildings, as you learn a great deal about the importance of design ideas, innovation, durability and care. It is also a very sociable work, interacting with a variety of people from all backgrounds, joining forces in helping current generations to enjoy historic buildings, to create community identities around them, and to transmit the buildings and their values to the future. Glasgow and its surrounding area provide an excellent location for the course, with architectural heritage from all periods, from Roman to Medieval, Georgian, Victorian and contemporary, without forgetting the better known C. R. Mackintosh and Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson’s buildings. Strathclyde has a lively international community of staff and students and we enjoy a privileged position in the centre of Glasgow. You’ll study The course is a platform for: collaboration with both practice and research partners architectural critique discussion and debate All full-time students take instructional classes and a design project in the first two semesters. MSc students then complete a dissertation project. Compulsory taught classes are delivered intensively, making them more accessible to part-time students and Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Areas explored in classes include: theory history survey investigations legislation materials structures The course is informed by the outcomes of the research being carried out at the Architectural Design and Conservation Research Unit (ADCRU). It is a platform for collaboration with both practice and research partners; architectural critique, discussion and debate are fundamental parts of the course. Course content Semester 1 Compulsory classes: Theory of Conservation Architectural & Construction History Legislation & Regulations Survey, Preliminary Studies & Investigations in Architectural Heritage Materials & Decay Elective classes Choose from the following: Urban History Urban Theory Real Estate Development Urban Design Policy and Practice Sustainability Construction Project Management Semester 2 Compulsory classes: Conservation Design Project Structural Repairs & Strengthening Conservation Materials Technology Dissertation Learning & teaching The course is balanced between theory and practice. It’s delivered through: lectures workshops studio-based, and seminar-led learning, by staff and visiting experts from the UK and overseas The course is a platform for collaboration with both practice and research partners; architectural critique, discussion and debate are fundamental parts of the course. Assessment Formative assessment will take place throughout the course. You’ll be assessed through lectures, seminars, interim Studio Reviews and workshops, supported by student presentations, symposia and peer feedback. Methods of teaching vary; some subjects are formally taught using lectures and seminars, others use a mix of methods which may incorporate small projects. The main architectural conservation project is a studio based project which involves one-to-one tuition and appraisals in review seminars. Team teaching techniques are used in several projects and increasing use is made of student peer group reviews. Summative assessment will be through: studio reviews individual written essays and reports oral presentations dissertation - directly linked to the conservation project Entry requirements A first or second-class Honours degree (or equivalent) in Architecture (ARB/RIBA Part 2 or equivalent), Structural or Civil Engineering. Consideration will also be given to candidates with other relevant professional qualifications in a discipline related to the built environment and/or professional experience.
