In this module you will address the issue of how and why cities look as they do. You will investigate urban form through history, and the module will encourage you to understand how and why particular patterns of development have come into being and why other visionary insights have not. Particular attention is paid to design traditions, philosophies and intentions, past and present. You will be required to critically engage with the topics and to distinguish between the physical manifestations of different types of urbanism.

International tuition fee: £1,350 (Price per 20-credit module)

This module provides a historical overview of Western Architecture, drawing from aspects of various critical theory streams, while at the same time encouraging students to create their own tools for conducting primary research on a range of chosen interiors. You will look at historical and contemporary interior environments, covering psychological, cultural, social and economic codes that underpin their creation. Module material is covered in lectures, film projections, seminars and field work.

In an increasingly urbanised world, there is growing international demand for urban design graduates. These courses will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to participate in this rapidly expanding profession. Urban design involves shaping the physical setting for life in cities. The pace of urban change, and the challenge of making cities efficient, sustainable and meaningful, demands creative solutions to design and management. The Urban Design courses at Westminster provide a coherent approach to issues that face our cities, combining structured academic study with live design projects, allowing you to develop practical skills, a theoretical understanding and an informed approach to sustainable urban development.

The module is built around a site-based design exercise with a series of specific tasks relating to various stages of project development including design brief, development appraisal and design statement.

Much of my teaching revolves around studio-based design projects.

You will cover a range of issues, both theoretical and practical. Design modules deal with contemporary issues in a variety of interior design typologies, including retail, exhibition, gallery, performance and speculative efforts broadly described as installation. Careful studies are made in the pursuit of a fresh approach to their design resolution, through analogous and figurative studies, as well as comparison using suitable contemporary exemplars. The thesis can be undertaken as a design project, a dissertation or a piece of research – effectively a hybrid, both a project and a written summary or theoretical proposition. Our graduates have the knowledge and advantage of already operating within a competitive and demanding academic environment in London. In some cases the course has equipped our graduates to advance their study at PhD level.

This module will introduce you to two-dimensional digital graphics, image manipulation and animation. Taking a proposition of a modern urban paradigm to be space in continuous, dynamic flux, students are challenged to observe, learn and interpret space as if directors of a short (animate ) film, exploring time, camera angles, effects of editing, sound and other techniques that will give a unique perspective on the invention and interpretation of space with temporal, ephemeral materiality.  Narration, sequence building and storyboard planning underpin preparatory work. Skills offered on this module will broaden student’s capabilities beyond the standard, offering competitive advantage in a crowded, practice market place.  

The module specifically deals with the research, development, exploration, synthesis and conclusion of your chosen area of study for your major thesis project. The aim is to evolve the project developed from the position formulated in the thesis development module.

The project requires substantially greater commitment than any previous project task, and can be either design based or text based. You will work individually on the project, which will need to embrace the highest standards of critical review – whether in challenging particular theories and their manifestations in design and architecture, or in demonstrating a personal or innovative approach to the design process.

This module offers you the opportunity to research in-depth topics or issues related to urban design based on primary or desk-based research. The written dissertation is 12-15,000 words in length. Alternatively, you may undertake a major design project that explores a particular issue and is informed by research, including a written report of 5-6,000 words.
