About Architecture and Urban Design Studio 2 Summer School
This course provides an introduction to post graduate studies in Architecture through the vehicle of a five-week studio based design programme. It will use methodological prompts from Patrick Geddes and other theorists and practitioners for experimenting in contemporary architectural and urban design propositions within Edinburgh.
Course entry is sought from students with a degree in Architecture who have an interest in developing into post-graduate education.
This course is available to students with a demonstrable background in Architecture and/or Urban Design who are considering progressing their learning at a post-graduate level and wish to be involved in creative studio output. A high level of drawing skills will provide an excellent platform for obtaining the most from this course. The course is open to different design sensibilities, but requires all students to fully participate with a high level of production.
Students must possess a first degree in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and/or Urban Design. A portfolio must be submitted as part of the application.
For summer 2015 this is our only credit-bearing post graduate level course, and for those students who are about to enrol on our MSC in Architectural and Urban Design this course can constitute a 20-credit optional module to be carried forward onto the MSc. Alternatively, this course can also be taken as a free standing, non-credit-bearing course, please see here for further details Architecture and Urban Design Studio 1
