The scheme cultivates and reveals human-related ideas from the realm of the profane as a way to provide awareness and self-reflection on Unwanted issues we deal with on a daily basis.
The approach of Unwanted emerges from a journey of obscurity and raw experiences through an Immersive Theatre space. The spaces dramatically evoke and portray seven layers influenced by site investigations:
Sickness, Grief, Noise, The grotesque, Darkness, Discomfort, and Anxiety.
Visitors confront the Layer of the Unwanted to then receive Art Therapy as a way to heal and reflect upon what was experienced in the Immersive Theatre.
The architectural vision here lies on the duality of two ongoing and everchanging layers within the mind, soul, and body (Wanted vs Unwanted). Therefore, the necessity for the human to feel, hear, see, and smell these spaces could be of crucial help when identifying issues in their inner selves.
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.
