The Junction of Acquisition

A school of architecture where knowledge is gained through experience and reflection.

Located at the intersection between Meadow Lane Lock and the River Trent, the school glides over the site creating an oasis for learning.

The school welcomes practicing architects who are willing to share their knowledge with the next generation to use the school as their base. The students participate in live projects resulting in an apprenticeship-style course that nurtures students from RIBA Part 1 through to accreditation as Architects.

The design caters to the mental health and well-being of its inhabitants, providing collaborative calming spaces for creativity to flourish. The fluid and dynamic nature of the building creates a flow within the school forging a sense of community, further contributing to the well-being of its users.

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.
