Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London
Architecture (Cities and Innovation)
The course capitalises on London's central position within both local and global networks. We see London as a �world laboratory� - an ideal test bed for urban innovation in response to social, cultural and political change, where you can develop strategies and methodologies to expand and enable localised change and drive effective and sustainable development strategies. High on the course agenda is the needs of a broad range of participants in the human environment. Students can play a crucial role in supporting communities and individuals to attain the benefits associated with development and physical change in the urban environment, but this requires a new approach. This course will show students that with closer, collaborative engagement with local groups, they can empower communities to become active participants in the process of development; enabling and building cultural and social, as well as economic, capital.
