Course details

Modules

In the first year, students are introduced to the history and theory of architecture, design processes and practices, building construction, environmental design and design theory. In the second and third years, students can work on a series of independent and collaborative projects. As students progress, they can mould research and design projects to explore current issues that are of interest. The course aims to release creative potential, explore design processes and lay a foundation of cultural and technical knowledge. Skills in drawing, computer-aided design, model-making and exhibition can be developed through a series of design projects. Students have the opportunity to participate in practical explorations of materials and construction techniques which can lead to adventurous designs. The curriculum is designed to address the social, theoretical and contextual issues of living in the contemporary city. Design projects aim to build confidence in responding with imagination, humanity and concern for the environment.
