Goodbye World; Hello SCI-Arc!
| M.Arch 2
(4 + 2.5 year program)
This course, specifically designed to build upon and reconsider knowledge gained from undergraduate degrees in Architecture, has as its aim the reappraisal of the discipline of Architecture. Students are introduced to a more critical view of contemporary architectural issues - both theoretical and design-related - as a tool with which to examine the complex and shifting relationship between Architecture and cultural, political, economic and social change. The program provides students with a knowledge of the latest developments in technology, as well as an understanding of design methodologies and their historical and contemporary contexts. On completing the core courses, students can choose from vertical studios and elective seminars that either continue the focus of their core studies or broaden the scope of their education. Students complete their studies with the presentation, in a public exhibition, of a thoroughly researched independent thesis project.SCHEDULE FOR FALL 2004
