Design Studies 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D: The first design studies project will introduce you to the whole of the architectural design process: from conceptualisation and inception, through design development and resolution, to full size realisation and construction. Subsequent projects will develop design methodologies to enable you to design your first building. 

Further Year 1 classes are:

  • Experiencing Architecture: a compulsory series of discussion seminars and communications skills workshops supporting the Design Studies programme
  • Cultural Studies 1: we encourage you to develop confidence in observing and commenting on architecture of all periods, and to express yourself clearly and accurately in spoken and written communication
  • Technology Studies 1: this class introduces you to areas such as building structures; construction processes; building physics; and sustainability and environmental responsibility and control
