In this Situated Practice programme from University College London (UCL), students learn about spatial theories and practices in art, architecture, performativity, urbanism and writing, develop a robust understanding of research methods in art and design, and design practice-led research and their own site-related projects – from physical installations and digital interventions to site writings.
Working with practitioners and researchers from The Bartlett School of Architecture, alongside affiliated centres and institutions, this programme empowers students to pioneer new forms of hybrid practice between art and architecture.
- Develop a strong understanding of appropriate research methodologies in art and design practice-led research, specifically relating to approaches towards criticality, performativity and textuality
- Make ‘situated practice’ projects that are site-related – from physical installations and events to digital interventions and site-writings
- Identify the polemics of interesting sites, research and develop interventions, and evaluate their success
- Learn in state-of-the-art facilities at UCL at Here East, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and have the opportunity to exhibit your work
The Bartlett School of Architecture is one of the world's top-ranked architecture schools and our graduates enjoy excellent employment opportunities and the practice-led research skills to carry out future doctoral research in the field.Graduates of this programme are critical, innovative and transdisciplinary practitioners who undertake projects addressing the specific concerns of sites and developing appropriate transformations for them.
