This degree is the first step in a professional career in architecture. Our programme offers students a range of approaches to design through studio-based tutorial groups. Each design group or unit explores diverse aspects of architecture, ranging from rapid technological changes, emerging social conditions and contemporary cultural contexts to more abstract aesthetic and theoretical concerns.
Tutorial groups are supported by studies in the history of architecture, sustainability, practice, cultural context and technology, all of which are integrated with an understanding of the development of a design project. The design projects develop abilities and skills in creating and communicating architectural ideas. You will explore the visual and tactile world, learning visual and drawing skills and the use of computer software.
The context for design work is set at the start of each term; critiques of student work are made at the middle and end of each term. Visits to art galleries, museums and important buildings and lectures by eminent speakers are vital to the programme. You will also attend field courses abroad, usually during the second and final years.
The aims of the programme are:
