The MA Environmental Architecture Programme has introduced an innovative format of partnership with a selected group of professional practices and organisations. In the beginning of their Independent Research Project (IRP), students and mentors are paired according to intercepting research interests. Students work on their proposal for six weeks on-site within the mentor’s installations. In doing so we hope professional practices and organisations might have a foundational role in the development of the student’s IRP.
Students will benefit from feedback and commentary, while being able to reflect upon the relevance of their work outside of the academic context. Composed of a unique set of practices at the forefront of contemporary environmental design and thinking, the selection of mentors aims to reflect the diversity of perspectives and possibilities within the MA Environmental Architecture Programme.
