BA Architecture overview

BA Architecture provides the opportunity to study at a leading design institution in an architecturally captivating city. We encourage you to draw inspiration from the city as you apply local understanding to global concerns, both rural and urban.

You’ll become confident in the planning, design and construction of buildings and other structures and spaces. We’ll support you to design with an understanding of aesthetic, cultural, historical and technical considerations, within a creative fine art context.

We promote collaborations across courses and you’ll have the opportunity to analyse films, cities and spaces, make models and generate speculative design propositions at a range of scales.

As well as these conceptual and practical investigations, our course specialises in grounding our future architects with an understanding of construction.

Our open lectures, biannual architecture festivals, exhibitions and the RIBA East Lectures in nearby Cambridge are all great resources and each year study visits to cities such as Berlin, Prague and Amsterdam will enable you to contextualise your practice. We’re looking for students motivated by a love of art and design combined with making and technology.
