Course Description

Architecture is the design, planning and construction of new buildings. This course combines art, philosophy, technology and ecology with an experimental approach to solve problems connected to the places where we live, work and relax.

This course will give you an understanding of both the practical and theoretical aspects of architecture. You will study the design of buildings and the technical aspects of construction alongside how architecture relates to the notions of live, work and relax.

You will learn through a mixture of problem-based outcomes, design studio tutoring, workshops and traditional teaching. To prepare you for the profession, we put an emphasis on cross-disciplinary working with other departments and completing briefs as part of a team. Teaching staff and visiting professionals bring further industry perspectives to the course.

Architects are most often employed in the design of quality environments. There are many different specialties but you could work in architectural and urban design, environmental research, building conservation, heritage matters or community development.

Course Content

Year 1

You will build skills in architectural computer graphics, basic principles of structure and design and basic research skills. You will begin to think about professional enterprise and angles on problems of the built environment. We encourage you to start thinking about your contextual studies research.

Year 2

You will gain greater understanding of urban design, branded environments, rehabilitation projects, and the history of the city. This will allow you to enhance your practice and develop your approach to your design work. We set briefs that encourage you to collaborate with other students and create work as part of a design team.

Year 3

You will bring your learning together in a final negotiated major project, where you will investigate and make architectural design decisions. You will carry out a negotiated project which takes the form of a live brief. We ask you to show your contextual studies research and thinking in a long form dissertation. You will leave with a portfolio that shows your skills in areas in entry-level architecture.
