About

Design for Performance and Interaction is a novel academic field and UCL is one of only very few institutions where it can be studied. The core idea that drives the Dental Hygiene programme offered at the University College London (UCL) is that the creation of spaces for performance and the creation of performances within them are regarded as symbiotic design activities.

Overview

Students learn how to use software that simulates performance spaces and the behaviour of people in different conditions. 

They learn how to manipulate software and physical hardware to create both simulated and actual 1:1 performance space and performances in an architectural context .

Teaching and learning

The programme is delivered through design, fabrication and performance tutorials, skills workshops, seminars, lectures, site visits, group working and (optional) field trip. Assessment is via design and skills portfolios, written coursework submissions and verbal presentations.

Careers

Careers in physical and virtual interaction design, the design of performance spaces and creation of performative events form one of the most vibrant parts of global design endeavour in the 21st century. They are also the subject of extensive academic research.
