About

Urban Design is a studio-based programme from University College London (UCL) bringing together designers and thinkers from around the world for long-term research on the challenges of global urbanisation and the creative potential of design.

Overview

Urban design is the study of cities, their form and nature, as well as the complex challenges and opportunities of global urbanisation. This Urban Design programme from University College London (UCL) belongs to The Bartlett School of Architecture's suite of B-Pro programmes, which focus on advanced digital design and computation.

Working collaboratively within teaching groups called Research Clusters, students explore new ideas in both design and theory, developing a complex understanding of the city as a place of human co-existence. 

Students are encouraged to use the school’s home in London as their primary ‘laboratory’, but also undertake other field work. The programme provides the opportunity to discover new design skills, using specialist tools and technology.

Urban Design MArch culminates in the annual B-Pro Show – an exhibition of student work, attracting thousands of visitors to the school’s central London home.
