Course summary

Architecture teaches expertise in the design of buildings and places, creating the setting for human life. The primary skill is design – the ability to imagine three-dimensional spaces and objects and apply knowledge of materials, structure and energy turning concept into reality working with engineers, contractors and many other professionals.

Assessment method

Design project work is assessed on the basis of a portfolio of work consisting of a series of assignments completed during the year. The portfolio will include drawings, photographs of models and illustrated written reports. Feedback on student progress is given throughout the year – usually in the form of verbal comments by a team of tutors on the basis of student presentations and review attended by fellow students. Formative assessment is made at the end of each project – usually in the form of a provisional mark, which allows students to respond to feedback before the final submission of the portfolio when the final (or ‘summative’) assessment is made. Assessments of work in the contextual modules will take the form of practical exercises during the year, reports and essays and time-constrained assessment by means of tests and formal examinations.
