Oxford Brookes University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This course gives you the opportunity to learn about the architectural design process and develop your professional skills. You will investigate: • the representation of ideas • the relationship between people and the spaces they inhabit • the impact of landscape and city scape on the design of buildings • integration of design concepts with material form and structure • contemporary and future architectural practice. All of these can be found in Oxford, a city full of world-renowned architecture, both historic and contemporary.
In Year 1 you work on design projects and learn the fundamentals of architectural design, including designing in three dimensions, in context, to scale and developing an architectural brief. Parallel teaching includes representational techniques, such as architectural drawing and model-making. You will also be introduced to architectural history and theory, the principles of technology and the architect’s role in society. In Years 2 and 3 more complex projects are undertaken in individual design units. Modules in key subjects such as the history and theory of architecture and building technology provide a wider understanding and inform your project work.
