The Architecture BSc aims to inspire and exercise you in as wide a range of experiences as possible, so you develop an independent, creative, diverse and rigorous approach to design from the outset, and are guided in discovering your own direction in architecture.
Year 1: This year offers a sequence of projects which develop the central skills of observation, design and representation, with emphasis on the inventive and intelligent expression of ideas; all students are expected to work in a designated studio space under the supervision of studio staff; augmenting the studio projects are lecture courses on: history and theory; production of the built environment; technology; a field trip to a major European city is also part of the programme. Year 2: At the start of this year, students choose to join 1 of up to 9 design units, in which they remain for the year; each unit declares a clear architectural position; the range of units allows each student to begin to develop personal architectural interests within a strong academic framework; the history and theory course offers a lecture series on 20th-century concepts and history; the technology course is integrated with studio work via lectures which outline the major technical issues that affect construction, resulting in an audit of a design project; a computing course provides students with an opportunity to develop a full range of computing skills. Year 3: Students are again given the opportunity to select their design unit; it is expected in this degree year that students develop 1 of their design projects to a high degree of architectural and intellectual resolution; in collaboration with year 2 history and theory, studies are developed through lectures and seminar groups which investigate contemporary theories of architecture and culture; year 3 technology teaching is fully integrated into the unit programme, each student preparing a technical report on their major design project.
