About the Programme
M. Arch is a two-year professional postgraduate programme meant for providing a disciplined approach to the fundamentals of architecture for students to develop their individual talents and skills.
The Master’s degree programme focuses on design as exposition exploration as a manifesto or a product. The programme aims to explore design as a critique beyond the limitations of production as in the contemporary fusion of low-end design and kitsch. The goal is to achieve the ability to rethink the scope of architecture.
The emphasis is on new digital tools in design exploration as well as new paradigms and on the conviction that design can initiate radical social change or reflect its design can either follow or lead. Students also critically engage with historical critiques and arguments especially that of modernism architectural manifestos social and technological utopias as well as contemporary practices and paradigms. Graduates become accountable actors in shaping the built environment and/or critically engage it.
