Students select from a range of design elective studio options each offering a specific architectural exploration. These are aligned with the four major themes offered in the MArch degree: Architecture and High Performance Technology, Architecture and Urban Conditions, Architecture and Housing and Architecture and Social Agency. The elective focus will be informed by research expertise and pedagogical aims from within and beyond the major, but projects will be structured as explorations, through architectural design, of issues and challenges included in the majors. These typically require the design of medium to large-scale buildings and/or developments, with complex constraints and requirements, to an ambitious level of programmatic, spatial and material integration and resolution; or of highly ambitious, experimental and imaginative projects. In each semester students demonstrate mastery of a computational design or performative evaluation strategy introduced in the undergraduate degree.
