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.
