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 'Reprogramming the City: Opportunities for Urban Infrastructure'

In June 2015, ARKDES, the Swedish Architecture and Design Centre, launch Reprogramming the City, a global collection of forward thinking ideas and projects curated by SCOTT BURNHAM that reuse and repurpose existing urban assets to meet the growing needs of cities and people.
From a billboard in Lima, Peru, that has been converted into a humidity collection system to provide clean drinking water for residents, to abandoned subway tunnels in London that have been repurposed as food growing areas, Reprogramming the City reveals the unrealized capabilities of existing urban assets when they are used in new ways.

The exhibition runs at ARKDES in Stockholm from 18 June until 30 August
