A HIGHLY PRACTICAL COURSE WHICH INCLUDES A SERIES OF STUDY TRIPS TO INTRODUCE THE PRINCIPLES OF BRITISH ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN.

An ideal introduction to British architecture and design, this course is based around the creative processes of ‘thinking and making’ to enhance your understanding of architectural design.

Course study trips will underpin your studio sessions with visits to significant buildings and public spaces, including London. You’ll be encouraged to use digital techniques in your work, along with drawing and illustrative methods to develop your ideas on building concepts, spatial awareness and form. Using your drawings and digital software, you will also produce a 3D model from your design.
