The MArch Architecture forms a central part of the Bartlett's internationally renowned architectural design programme. The process is one of critical scepticism allied to creative innovation. Much of the current work by staff and students is at the forefront of developing new intellectual and formal concepts in global architecture discourse.
The unit system ensures that an open, active and critical debate is sustained by the school on what constitutes architecture, and reinforces the Bartlett ethos that architectural knowledge and expertise is synthesised through student's own projects. Bartlett graduates are amongst the most sought after employees by leading and emerging practices including MAKE, HOK, AHMM, Future Systems, RSH+P, Fosters, Block, and Heatherwick's. Some graduates of the programme, such as the groups or individuals; Lynn Foxx, Mobile Studio or Squint, have also foraged successful careers in parallel practices such as time base media, exhibitions and events, urban and furniture design or film-making. Employability Study at The Bartlett School of Architecture is enriched by the vibrant community of specialist consultants, partners and research associates who provide valuable contact with industry and academia.
