Today we live in an unprecedented state of uncertainty, in the wake of a viral attack on humankind that has had a profound effect on our urban way of life. Affected as we are by climate change, the erosion of our eco-system, conflict, religious persecution, displacement of communities and the
ever-rising gap between the rich and poor, inevitably we are forced to question the way we coexist and our relationship with the world.
Our MA in Architecture and Urban Design offers a unique perspective on how pro-active urban planning can address the dynamic conditions that influence today’s cities. The global population continues to grow so the urgent need for space and resources puts us in competition with our environment, as well as with our fellow humans. As an urban species, growth and quality of human habitat are some of the biggest issues we face today.
