Work on display: Architecture
With 6.5 billion people forecast to live in urban areas by 2050, the challenges facing cities and governments around the world are vast. Architecture and Urban Planning are disciplines with the capacity to drive change as well as respond to it, creating places for people to work and live for this century and the next.
Our graduates operate locally and internationally as architects, planners, urban designers, developers and educators. The profession continues to change and develop at speed, but will always deal with the legacies of the past, the predictions of the future, and the realities of the present. Developments in technology, manufacturing, commerce and policy require students to have access to exceptional facilities. To prepare students for the future, we challenge them to embrace collaborative learning and to work within a creative environment which facilitates ‘thinking through making’, both physically and digitally.
This year's projects highlight examples of the varied themes and fascinations which have obsessed our students and staff over the past 12 months. This includes the work of final year M.Arch students across the three study units they select from. The Architecture & Society students are determining 'What Society Looks Like' with investigations of Gdansk, Poland. The MacroMicro group have focused on the socio-spatial processes resulting from the residential concentration of students in Dundee, Glasgow, and Newcastle. The work of MArch with Urban Planning students considers the public realm and the economic, social and political context of Perth city centre.
This year's cohort are part of our ongoing collective story and are proud to promote their amazing work and experiences to their families and supporters, prospective and current students, industry representatives and the alumni of the future. Congratulations to all of our students for their dedication, persistence, good humour, professionalism and hard work. We wish them well whether they continue on their educational journey or progress to the world of work.
