Advanced Architectural Research PG Cert

  • QAR 1000

  • Full Time : 3 months

  • Member from 3 years

  • Qatar , London



Architecture and engineering have a history where research and practice go hand in hand, where many great practices have grown as a result of fundamental research and where many research projects arise from ground-breaking design. This is especially true during periods of economic inactivity when recent modes of working are called into question and new modes (sometimes based on rediscovered historical precedent) are established.
