The MA Glass programme seeks to develop practice that is concerned with re-evaluating architectural glass traditions, conventions and value systems. It is this rigorous re-interpretation process; both physical and psychological that will inevitably define the parameters of the individual student's personal study. 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 MA provides the opportunity to explore these new possibilities and knowledge as well as developing new skills and approaches to working in glass.

The MA Glass programme aims to develop those critical and reflective faculties to empower the student to engage in a more proactive, educated dialogue with architects, industry, designers, artists and scientists working in glass.
