The Nuclear Ghost of Edinburgh

The need to power cities through a more economical and less damaging source of energy has never been more prevalent than it has been now. Nuclear energy is one of the most low-carbon energy sources with one of the smallest carbon footprints – answering the crises of the energy gap.

Where there is nuclear power, there is a requirement for defence, however most threats remain overseas, and the threat is no longer physical but is now technological. The teaching of Cybersecurity does not only develop knowledge of the subject but protects against any threat. Detaching from reality is the significance here for advancement in technologies, and in doing so Virtual Reality becomes a plane to work within.

The mesh structures provide a link to the past whilst housing the future. They act as silhouettes of the Central Basilica, a ghostly form to enunciate the past merging with the future.

MArch Architecture

The Master of Architecture (MArch) embraces the challenge of 21st Century architectural practice and focuses on educating architects with a global outlook through projects set in local, national, and international contexts.

Through “vertical studios” in each year of study, steered by leading practitioners and academics, we put current architectural thinking at the heart of the course. We locate architectural design centrally as an academic discipline through rigorous cross-disciplinary design research and complex methodological application. The course recognises the essential cross-cutting and cross-disciplinary nature of architecture, bringing together diverse disciplines aiming to create collaborative/group work as a means of developing design creativity within the realistic teamwork environment of practice. All projects will be developed considering sustainability, environmental, socio-economic and cultural aspects, rather than being studied and applied as discrete areas of teaching and learning.
