Discere Per Facere

Discere Per Facere - The School of Sustainable Detailing

Discere Per Facere (DPF) school will move into a new way of learning, whereby architecture students learn not only about designing but also the process of construction. For example, looking at the different joinery methods and ways to create a building including structural, technological and mechanical details.

The DPF will have an overall concept of ‘Learning by Making’ ensuring that students get not only to design the buildings through drawings but also by engaging in full size scaled models, modelling intricate and detailed connections within the building. They will see their designs through to the end.

Within the DPF, there will be three subjects taught:

- Architectural Designs
- Sustainable Detailing
- Construction Interdisciplinary

These subjects will be interlinked to ensure there is integration not only between pupils and visitors but also between their work. This will ensure every student will have the chance to learn about all the distinct factors within architecture and construction.

BArch Architecture

The BArch (Hons) in Architecture course is focused on the creative and practical development of architectural design, investigated in a studio environment through a series of carefully considered practical and theoretical projects in a variety of spatial, social, cultural and topographical situations.

The purpose of the course is to align architectural concepts, thinking, techniques and values with current architectural thought and practice. It involves strategic thinking and creative imagination; problem-solving and research tasks; attention to detail and tectonic resolution; traditional and digital forms of representation; and public presentations and reviews. This course addresses the challenges of designing for diverse communities and cultures and develops Part 1 graduates with creative vision, practical skills and an ethical position in respect of the role of the architect in a globalised world.
