MA in Architecture

Our missions in Architecture are to take a broad view and make the most of the RCA’s art and design context. At MA level we prepare students for an effective, ideas-driven approach to architecture. London is always our testing ground. We are both inspired by, and apply our ideas to, the city – combining experiment with plausibility. We tune in to its social, economic and cultural wavelength, prise open real lives and load our proposals with narrative and personality.

We are not interested in designing spaces that simply evolve the norms of style but work in a dynamic way with what happens in them. Our medium is not so much bricks and mortar but space itself; we consider the work of the architect as spanning between the hard materiality of building and the reprogramming of existing space. The pursuit of these aims in architecture makes particular sense in the broader context of the College, where the proximity of sophisticated practice across the art and design spectrum underpins a multidisciplinary view of design....
