Course summary

The programme begins with a four-week Induction Studio. The subsequent Corary inhabitable structure in the woodland. Seminar courses run alongside the studios and cover agendas of ruralism, timber technologies and the cultural theories of making. These taught components are then applied in the main projects - for MSc students a 1:1 prototype, for MArch students a group-designed building for the Hooke Park campus. The programme concludes with an individually written dissertation that presents the constructed project as evidence of an argument concerning the practice and realisation of architecture.
