In 2019/20 THE Architecture and Environmental Design MSc focused on the investigation of the environmental performance of work environments in London. Semester 1 case studies included offices of architectural and consultancy firms in the London Bridge area. This study led to the semester 2 design brief on ‘Work environments for London 2050’. Proposals for the complete re-imagination of the studied sites were offered by the students with attention to the climatic, social and economic sustainability of each project.
The course successfully continues the Collaborative Thesis Programme with Industry and the BREEAM Approved Graduate course, while gaining Learning Affiliate status with the Energy Institute. The industry partnerships have been very successful and have allowed our students to develop their thesis topics of mutual interest for the course, students and the industry partner. These range from parametrically optimised façade design in Dubai to carbon neutral urban blocks in Athens, and the environmental retrofit of existing office buildings in the UK, as well as of heritage sites in the Walled city of Lahore, Pakistan.
