MSc City Design and Social Science: From Hackney to Bucharest

MSc City Design and Social Science students have been focussing on the Pembury Estate in central Hackney, East London for this year’s City Design Research Studio, exploring the question ‘What does it mean to be ‘local’ in a global city?

They will also be visiting Bucharest for the annual field trip from 23-28 March and their findings will form the basis for a design brief /strategic framework for the future development of specific sites in the city, which each student will submit as their assessment for City-making: the politics of urban form, taught by Philipp Rode and Savvas Verdis.
