Library of Well-Being

Being at the heart of Nottingham, the library has many access points to come and visit the space. Its doors will be open to anyone that needs help or just wants to relax after a hard day at work.

The library will help anyone from any background, no matter what they are going through. The space aims to help people’s mental health through reading, gardens, entertainment and activities.

The library will create a journey for the user that will inspire them to want to continue through the building. They will explore and uncover the different spaces, creating a positive effect on their well-being and giving them a safe space to come and feel comfortable.

The ‘Library of Well-being’ will lift the user’s mood, whether that is from reading a book in the reading room or from walking through the gardens.

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.
