MSA Live 21 is the latest in the MSA’s annual programme of collaborative student-led live projects.

Previously titled MSA Events this annual programme is now called MSA Live. The new name reflects the nature of projects which unify BA1&2 MArch1 and (for the first time) also MLA1 cohorts in mixed year teams.

MArch students work with collaborators locally and globally to create impact beyond architectural education. MSA Live 21 comprises 42 projects and 600 students all working together on an exhilarating range of online activities with 50 external partners.

MSA Live affords benefits to all participants: project partners can set an agenda for consideration; students engage in peer-to-peer learning while testing modes of architectural practice in collaborative live projects; some projects are research-led with connections to MSA staff projects and all create social impact.

External partners include charities social enterprises community groups and other organisations who work with MArch students to develop a brief and comprehensively plan activities. BA and MLA cohorts bring these ideas to life during an intensive two weeks at the end of the academic year.
