Studio Descriptors 2018/19

MA Environmental Architecture

Live Project-based studio work forms the core of learning in the MA Environmental Architecture programme; collaboration with external partners and knowledge exchange are central to our pedagogical model. 

Each Studio will develop collaborative design-led research around a unique case study. Studios work on the same case for a four-year period. As the programme grows, each new Studio will introduce a new case study. Read on for information on our current studio.

For 2018/19, the Lithium Triangle Research Studio will explore architecture’s contribution to new environmental futures, in the context of the global transition from fossil fuels to 'clean' energy. Meanwhile, The Orang-orang and the Hutan Studio interrogates bio-resources – both extracted and extracted from – through the specific, elemental materials and processes that comprise the inhabited forest, and in doing so addressse intersectional knowledges and spatial structures entangled within the social and ecological tensions of a forest under fire.
