This is a 3 year program for most students, taken at full time.
In year one, you’ll learn computer modelling, drawing and photographic design techniques. You’ll study the cultural and historical context of architecture, and how to consider the materials, environments and client demands you’ll be working with in your designs. You’ll also learn basic research techniques.
In year two, you’ll begin working with more and more complex design briefs. You’ll learn to balance the technical necessitate, aesthetic considerations and actual user needs when you design a structure. You’ll also learn to incorporate criticism, conceptual work and architectural research in your project planning and development practice.
In year 3, you’ll develop a portfolio, including an extensive Architectural Proposal and Research Report which must be completed to a professional standard. To support this, you’ll practice formulating proposals for the development or regeneration of urban spaces.
