The School of Community Architecture is a school of design teaching BArch, MArch and Apprenticeships in Architecture. The school is designed with collaboration at the heart of the design, alongside the driving sustainable approach of using innovative materials to create a low carbon design.
My school of architecture brings together the ideas of ‘Collaboration’, ‘Live Projects’ and ‘Well-being and Community’. I believe being part of an engaging group of individuals gives us a sense of belonging, enabling us to share personal relatedness and support everlasting growth of each other, ourselves, and our environment. Creating a sense of togetherness can be essential to better our well-being, providing unique opportunities for people to learn from each other and give support and encouragement. It is these concepts that are an invaluable part of any future design.
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.
