Spatial Practices and BA Architecture

BA (Honours) Architecture (RIBA Part 1) is one of four courses within the Spatial Practices Programme at CSM. Spatial Practices has a growing reputation and is renowned for its socially embedded and politically engaged approach to architecture, urbanism and spatial design. Challenging the role of the professions and seeking out new agendas and methodologies for spatial practice that are engaged with the social, economic and political conditions of space is central to the ethos of the programme and the BA Course.

BA Architecture is also deeply concerned with the climate emergency, decarbonisation, and the radical potential of new forms of making. With the recent appointment of a new Course Leader, and the launch of new experimental post-graduate courses, this is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the future of Spatial Practices at CSM.
