A new MA by Project (ARCSR) course is launched in 2014/15.
Date: 18 April 2014
The Architecture of Rapid Change and Scarce Resources (ARCSR) is delighted to launch a new MA by Project (ARCSR) course in 2014/15. There are a limited number of scholarship awards available to prospective students joining the course in 2014/15.
ARCSR is a research grouping within the School of Architecture at The Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design at London Metropolitan University, led by Professor Maurice Mitchell and Dr. Bo Tang. The MA by Project (ARCSR) builds on 10 years of experience working with NGOS and low-income communities in urban and peri-urban situations, combining research, teaching and practice. The MA by Project (ARCSR) offers a new and exciting opportunity for architectural engagement within a rich urban physical and cultural environment. Students from BA Architecture, Professional Diploma in Architecture and MA by Project (ARCSR) will participate in a field trip to a peri-urban area in Kathmandu, Nepal, in November 2014. Alternative field study attached to live projects in Freetown, Sierra Leone or Agra, India, will also be offered to MA by Project students.
A limited number of bursaries in the region of £5,000 from The Water Trust will be made available for new MA by Project (ARCSR) students joining the course in September 2014. Please send expressions of interest to Dr. Bo Tang. Applications for the course must be made to the University Admissions Office before 30 May 2014. Applicants should hold an undergraduate degree in architecture or a related discipline and will be interviewed with a portfolio of work.
For further information, please contact Dr Bo Tang: firstname.lastname@example.org
