The Cultural Mediations and Technology (CMT) program at McGill offers post-professional students of architecture a chance to explore entirely new methodologies and areas of architectural knowledge. This post-professional program compliments and extends McGill’s reputed strengths in history and theory of architecture by applying the same rigour of method and reflection to questions concerning new media and technology. However where traditional methodologies have concentrated on writings and historical contexts of work to elaborate architectural intentions, the new program takes current models and techniques as both the content and means of reflection. The program allows students to develop and employ advanced technical skills as well as rigorously reflect on and test their wider import.
The CMT program brings together expertise in fabrication, modeling, visualization, as well as contemporary theory and cultural landscapes. This is a unique combination of skills, viewpoints and expertise opening a radical new approach to the architectural endeavor.
