San’t Norm provides both temporary accommodation for families with children receiving care at Queens Medical Centre with that of a theatre/auditorium.
The proposal looks to change the notion of an excursion for treatment into one which creates an indispensable condition; where one may look forward to it instead of being overwhelmed in anxiety, through an emphasis on the importance of landscape and a connection to the outdoors. The binding of this element with that of space for celebration, laughter and participation will deepen the bond between person and place, further magnifying the fundamental principles of my proposal.
This precondition will lead to the growth of existing relationships between the users of the space, compelling the user to obtain a deeper appreciation of one’s position in time, as well as within the world.
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.
