BA Architecture (Part 1) is accredited by ARB and RIBA, so on the course youâ??ll prepare for professional practice. This professional validation means that upon graduating, students will have fulfilled the first of a three-part process required to become a registered architect in the United Kingdom. You will investigate the ways we live in the world, individually and collectively, through our spatial relationships with materials, to make places that make a difference. Youâ??ll be exposed to a wide range of skills that will form the foundation of your career in Architecture, including: making, collaboration, designing and doing. Youâ??ll develop an understanding of the practice and theory of architecture, grounded in making, along with critical thinking and a familiarity with the material nature of architectural ideas. Youâ??ll explore the reflective practice of making thoughtful, tangible, inhabited places that mediate between the individual, the world we live in and the others we live with. Both inside and outside of the studio, as well as in regular seminars, lectures and reviews, youâ??ll engage in projects that encourage the creative balancing of rigour and risk, informed by technical and contextual knowledge. Integrating theory with practice is at the heart of professional architectural practice, so thatâ??s exactly what youâ??ll do here. Youâ??ll raise issues, explore, experiment and make judgements. Youâ??ll discuss and present ideas about architecture as an expressive act through making tangible propositions, mindful of how they might be realised. This â??research-by-makingâ?? encourages risk-taking, innovation and entrepreneurship.
