About

The Architecture by Design programme offered by The University of Edinburgh provides you the opportunity to pursue design-led research at the highest level. 

Overview

The words ‘by design’ refer to your mode of:

  • research
  • practice
  • exegesis

Therefore, it is important to understand how your ‘by design’ method informs and directs a thesis over a particular research duration, and how the development of your ‘by design’ methodology is not only an important aspect of the thetic process, but also important to how your thesis is finally presented.

Facilities of the  Architecture by Design programme offered by The University of Edinburgh

Our full facilities will be available to you, including extensive digital and specific material workshops. You will have the opportunity to contribute to our healthy design presentation culture, print and e-publication output, international debate across a range of design-related fields and the organisation of symposia and conferences.
