British Architecture & Design Summer Course
An Introduction to the principles of architecture
Architecture creates a sense of space for all types of human activity, and provides us with an environment that enriches our lives. Architecture is an extraordinary thing, and architects can improve people’s lives by constantly redefining the way our buildings and spaces create our behaviours. This course is an ideal introduction for those interested in architecture and design who may want to improve their knowledge and practical experience before deciding on their next steps in this fascinating subject.

You will consider architectural concepts of space, form, function and technology through a mixture of theory, practice and fieldwork. You will develop your drawing skills, whilst individual and group studio projects will allow you to explore building materials and methods of construction.

Course study trips will underpin your studio sessions with visits to significant buildings and public spaces, including London. You’ll be encouraged to use digital techniques in your work, along with drawing and illustrative methods to develop your ideas on building concepts, spatial awareness and form.

Using your drawings and digital software, you will also produce a 3D model from your design.
