The Moscow School of Architecture
The Cass played a significant role in the creation of The Moscow School of Architecture (MARCH), part of the British Higher School of Art and Design.
About the School
The Moscow School of Architecture (MARCH) is part of the British Higher School of Art and Design and will offer The Cass Architecture students the opportunity to study in Moscow as part of their course. It will also allow us to carry out live projects, research and consultancy in Russia.
MARCH offers students the unique advantage of being able to obtain a British postgraduate qualification – a Postgraduate Diploma in Architecture or MA in Architecture and Urbanism – whilst undertaking studies in Moscow.
MARCH was founded by renowned architect, teacher and social activist Eugene Asse, who is also the school’s Dean. The educational ethos is based upon the principle of immersion in actual social, cultural, economic and political contexts. This is achieved through the provision of interdisciplinary collaborative projects involving participants from various professions, including architects, sociologists, engineers, designers, artists and managers.
MARCH shares our concern for socially responsible architecture and the role practices can play in education. Studios in MARCH will be taught by leading Russian practitioners such as Eugene Asse and Alexander Brodsky.
