Course Description

Architecture and Digital Media MA The use of digital technology is now central to architectural design practice, but while computer modelling, drafting and visualisation are already key features of architectural education, these technologies and other developments in this field continue to provide the scope for exciting new research and innovation in design. This course provides the opportunity for those already conversant with conventional digital design tools and architectural theory to develop those skills, and to form a critical understanding of their role in architecture. The Architecture and Digital Media MA offers you a unique opportunity to pursue advanced postgraduate research in one of Britain?s leading architectural departments. The course combines high-level investigations into theoretical ideas with innovative design approaches employing digital technology, all within a challenging intellectual environment. A strong research culture has built up within the department, backed by first-class facilities such as the state-of-the-art digital designfabrication equipment and the much-acclaimed P3 Gallery space. The Department of Architecture is consciously international in its educational thinking and academic links, and as a result our graduates are among the most sought after anywhere in the world. Course content In the context of a vibrant digital design culture (including digital prototyping, animation, parametric design and interactiveresponsive environments), you will consider the implications of digital media technology in terms of its impact on architectural theory and design. By addressing a range of different technologies and their application, the course seeks to provide a critical perspective through which you can assess the value and appropriateness of these technologies. Centred primarily in projectbased work, attempts to theorise the use of digital media in architecture also draw on ideas derived from film theory, art history, philosophy and critical theory. Core modules ?Applied Animation ?Major Thesis Project ?Programming and Computational Design ?Site and Motion ?Theory and Positioning ?Thesis Development The course aims to further the education of professionals working principally in architectural offices, but also in applied arts and media. By developing skills in new media technologies, you will extend your creative abilities, enhancing your employability and performance as design professionals. In addition to architectural practice, past graduates of the course are now employed in a range of different design and media occupations.
