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 + Energy

MA A+U are very pleased to have been invited to participate in an Erasmus IP Workshop in Szczecin in the spring of 2014 organised by the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture at the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin. The theme of the proposed workshop is   ARCHITECTURE + ENERGY   and will concern the synergetic relation to the environment, sustainability and self-sufficiency. The area of the workshop will be the Odra river estuary and/or the coastal area of the Baltic Sea, which is unique, environmentally protected, but also a subject of some new investments in energy sector.   The main questions of the workshop will challenge contemporary and important environmental issues, in which both architecture and energy play their significant role. How architecture can profit from the use of new sources of clean energy? How the application of new energy sources can influence architecture? What is the impact of new energy investments on the environment (wind, water mills)? How to use new energy sources to enrich architectural and urban design and the environment? How can we design new urban developments, which will be self sufficient, and harmless for the environment?
