Term 1 & 2 Team Projects

Refurbishing the City 1 : London Building Studies Term 1: With London as laboratory and project teams that combine MSc and MArch students, on-site observations and environmental measurements in selected buildings are followed by use of advanced computational tools to investigate the relationship between building, climate and occupants highlighting the use of empirical and analytical investigations in informing design research and architectural practice.

Refurbishing the City 2 : Design Research Term 2: The insights gained from the Term 1 building studies provide starting points for design applications on selected urban sites.

The books below illustrate samples of some of these projects.  A series of small experimental structures were designed and fabricated by successive student cohorts illustrating the AA SED hands-on approach.
