The community of Sneinton is rich with diversity and culture but can feel disconnected and separated from the city of Nottingham. The Unity School of Architecture is a project aimed and integrating the school’s members into this community through collaboration. By creating a new hub for the community on the border to Nottingham city centre, the area can feel connected to the surrounding communities.
Unity between the natural and built environments is essential for project in both its urban and countryside setting. The school teaches students sustainability and environmental strategies, through visual representation, by acting as an exemplar of embedding sustainability and integrating green spaces into the site.
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.

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.
