The course focuses on gaining a spatial awareness of the fundamental concepts and contemporary ideas required to comprehend and respond to (design) the issues that global urbanisation poses in the twenty-first century. It assists students in acquiring a skill set capable of responding to the complex array of social, economic, and environmental elements influencing cities, as well as cultural problems such as spatial traditions and histories of city form and design. The curriculum culminates with a "thesis" module. There are two options. While both focus on 'design,' one allows you to complete your studies in a comprehensive written thesis, and the other allows you to complete your studies in a thesis that combines drawn/modelled/illustrated outputs with a shorter written text. Students will graduate with important abilities in articulating, explaining, and visualising complex city analysis and proposals, as well as an understanding of theories applicable to contemporary practice and global urban concerns.
