Course Description

Glass offers some remarkable properties, not least transparency and durability. These have been exploited in the architectural context for thousands of years.

Huge advances have been made in glass technology, and it would seem that the possibilities of the material grow daily rather than diminish. The pace of change is such that it has made it difficult for the practitioner to keep abreast of new developments.

This master's programme provides the opportunity to explore these new possibilities and knowledge, as well as to develop new skills and approaches to working in glass. Throughout the programme, you will be encouraged to develop innovative, sustainable solutions for a variety of architectural, public and private spaces.
