Spatial Practices Programme

The Spatial Practices programme consists of the following courses:

    In a world where established customs, systems and structures are increasingly unstable, we need a different kind of architectural thinking.

  • MA Cities

    MA Cities explores alternative, creative approaches to city-making.

  • MA Narrative Environments

    MA Narrative Environments combines stories and spaces to create memorable human experiences.
