Our vision is that people living in cities experience more fulfilled and more sustainable lives. Our school educates future leaders to design innovations that contribute to this change.
Network – To bring together outstanding students, practices, professionals, educators and entrepreneurs to generate and champion essential new approaches to the design of the urban built environment
Institution – To establish the school as independent and financially sustainable, achieving the highest standards of governance and academic delivery with the spirit of agility, openness and responsiveness
Programme – To provide programme(s) that generate incremental and disruptive innovations in the design of architecture and cities, and which critically equip our graduates for the creative and commercial practices of tomorrow
Talent – To be the route of choice for gifted students to become future spatial leaders, recruiting talented candidates from across the whole of society by proactively addressing soft and hard barriers to the profession/industry
Impact – To influence the future of architecture and the city – and particularly London – by producing provocative design/research for global dissemination and by being nimble agents of change within the capital itself
