The MA Architecture + Urbanism course is the Manchester School of Architecture's taught postgraduate course which conducts research into how global cultural and economic forces influence contemporary cities. The design, functioning and future of urban situations is explored in written, drawn and modelled work which builds on the legacy of twentieth century urban theory and is directed towards the development of sustainable cities.

Architecture + Urbanism recommends 'La Tendenza: Architectures Italiennes 1965-1985'

La Tendenza, Architectures italiennes 1965-1985 by centrepompidou

The first retrospective exhibition in France devoted to one of the founding movements of post-war architecture, from Italy, "La Tendenza, Italian Architectures, 1965-1985" presents a selection of over 250 drawings, models, photographs, paintings and films, as well as a rich documentation. The exhibition traces the highlights of the movement led by Aldo Rossi. Rejecting the notions of avant-garde and Utopia to initiate a political and critical architecture tuned into reality, La Tendenza offers a new approach to the architectural project founded on a renewal of drawing and the image.
