In order for the structure and behavior of a new structure to meet technical and aesthetic specifications, the imput of knowledgeable individuals in architecture is needed. This involves creating drawings, taking measurements and occasionally mediating compromises.

MArch in Architecture
The MArch course is an experimentally minded design studio.The year's study is divided into three broad areas.In the first you will collect a storehouse or catalogue of information, both conceptual and material, in a variety of media and techniques. This provides the ingredients to speculate on and question, in the second part of the year, the implications and possibilities of architectural responses to a programme or brief which you have developed on a particular given site. In the final part of the year you will develop, propose and present individually a design project of conceptual clarity realised in considerable depth and detail.There is an emphasis not only on the materials and techniques of construction but also elements such as air, heat, water, sound, smell and lights as materials too. This will involve visits to factories and workshops where materials are manipulated in a variety of unusual ways.... [-]
