Course content

Our Architecture Design and Build programmes focus on the relationships between design and the physical creation of space. Our programme will explore the nature of making and production as they relate to architectural design and practice.

The programme is designed to ensure that students have the opportunity to learn about architecture by making, to understand materials through hands-on exploration in their application, and ultimately to develop a critical response to the implications of design decisions on people and places.

Within the programme, you will be able to develop design ideas at 1:1 scale and the integration with architecture student’s from varying backgrounds and experience levels.
