Welcome to the MArch at Birmingham School of Architecture & Design. The MArch is founded on principles of ‘learning through making’ and ‘research by design’, represented here through the work of our three cross-level and mode of study design units; Arena, the Modern Gazetteer, and Extinction Rebellion Architecture.  We explore a long tradition of applied arts in Birmingham and the region, of a synergy between art and industry, culture and production, the students work drawing on this heritage and the creative context of the Faculty of Arts, Design and Media, as well as contemporary culture in speculating on future lives. We are interested in making connections within and beyond the academy, of sharing our position as an independent space to think, learn, act and make. We believe that our student’s research and design work has value and impact beyond the course, with relevance to contemporary issues, and opportunities for transdisciplinarity in the creation of traditional and non-traditional forms of knowledge. We hope you enjoy the work of our talented and committed students.
