A space that leaves the mind to create. The building is woven up the landscape, crossing and turning to show different dimensions, internally and externally, to motivate and inspire. No two students are the same; no two workspaces are the same. Large rooms are available to open, close, move and distort to create the perfect visionary working environment to teach, learn, collaborate and rest.
Gardens connect the local community deep into the site to coexist. They move and weave in and out of the space with freedom. With a central staircase leading to the featured windmill. The gardens provide materials for the students to work sustainably. Different art mediums are derived from locally grown produce and are manipulated for all the student's art needs.
The curvature of the topography is reflected in the roof cascading over the exterior, leaving exceptional and thought-provoking views out onto the city and lower site.
To inspire the innovation of artwork created by the new generation.
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.
